If I Knew...

If I knew that today would be the last time I’d see you
I would hug you tight and pray the Lord be the keeper of your soul
If I knew that this would be the last time you pass through this door
I’d embrace you, kiss you, and call you back for one more 
If I knew that this would be the last time I would hear your voice 
I’d take hold of each word to be able to hear it over and over again
If I knew this is the last time I see you
I’d tell you "I love you"
and would not just assume foolishly you know it already.

Thank you dear Leovi , yes, we would change our ways and not take anyone for granted, say how we feel, not how we think and tell those we love how much they mean to us before it is too late...sometimes, there are no second chances.
I love so many of the quotes of Márquez, words to live by.
Besos!

Ah listen, for silence is not lonely!
Imitate the magnificent trees
That speak no word of their rapture, but only
Breathe largely the luminous breeze.

From Corot by D.H. Lawrence

For some reason, it seems to scare delivery people when I divulge these very sentiments. And then the next time it's a new person.

dianne said...

Pugsley my sweet, perhaps you should not be so affectionate and amorous with delivery people. :)
hugs
xoxoxo ♡
