If I thought this was our last meeting,
I’d collect all our pictures and keep them safely.
If I thought this was the last moment that I hear your voice,
I’d listen to your speech attentively.
If I thought this was the last hug from you,
I would embrace you deeply from my heart.
If I thought this was our last drink together
I’d save the last sip of your coffee.
If I thought today was my last day on earth,
I’d tell you that our love is beyond death, eternal.
I’d love you for who you are.
If I thought this was our final journey together,
I’d spend the last night with you!
