If There Is No Tomorrow


by Gary Jacobson © 1999


I had a bad dream
The other night,
That woke me up,
Shook me up,
Gave me awful fright.

Suppose I died,
I cried...
Right here...
Right now...
Suddenly...
Tonight...
Without warning...
With no hope of coming morning.

Of the many things...
Procrastinated things...
Put off till tomorrow things...
Things left undone...
Without thought of what to do,
If for me the journey's
Through,
For if tomorrow
There is no rising sun...
There is but one thing too important,
To be left undone.

What of loved ones...
If the unthinkable comes?
What of those I hold dear,
I ask, trembling with fear?
The painful thought
Does my brain sear?
I want to tell them
How much I love them,
But when...
When they no longer
Can hear?

Would my beloved ever know,
If I wasn't there to show...
That they meant the world
To me.
There in my heart no other
Could ever be.
With all my heart,
I love my family.

I love you
My love...
My world...
My heart...
But do you know?

Have I done enough to show,
My love...
My heart...
My wife...


You are my very life.
