An Hour to Live, An Hour to Love

Ever since I work, public holiday has been the thing that I look forward to. Every single time. I know, you would probably think that I am a lazy worker but I'm not kay. :p So today, I dragged dad to MPH warehouse sale with me. 

And I bought this.

If you have an hour to live and an hour to love, who would you call? If God grant you an hour before he takes you away, what would you do when the clock started ticking? When we were young, everything in life seems to be so important. Money, fame, etc but love and compassion are never in the list. 

Take a break and ask yourself. Who would you call? We all have a list of friends over Facebook, Twitter or Instagram but I bet when it comes to the final hour, non or maybe there is one or two of them will make it to the final list. :)

From the book:-

Tomorrow Never Comes

If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly, and pray the Lord your soul to keep. 
If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you walk out the door, 
I would give you a hug and kiss, and call you back for just one more. 
If I knew it would be the last time I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise, 
I would tape each word and action, and play them back throughout my days.
If I knew it would be the last time, I would spare an extra minute or two,
To stop and say "I love you," instead of assuming you know I do. 

So just in case tomorrow never comes, and today is all I get, 
I'd like to say how much I love you, and I hope we never will forget.
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, 
And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes, you'll surely regret the day
That you didn't take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss,
And you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish. 

So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear,
That you love them very much, and you'll always hold them dear.
Take time to say "I'm sorry," "Please forgive me," "thank you" or "it's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes, you'll have no regrets about today.
