ONE MORE DAY

If I only had one more day
I would hold my family tight
I would tell them how much I needed them
When things just weren't right

If I only had one more day
I would hug each and every friend
I would thank them for caring about me
And sticking with me till the end

If I only had one more day
I would give every teacher a pat on the back
I would praise them for what they have taught me
Because now knowledge is something I don't lack

If I only had one more day
I would salute our country's defense
I would honor them for protecting me
And being brave when times were tense

If I only had one more day
I would look up at the moon and the stars
I would find beauty in all that surrounded me
And I would realize heaven isn't too far

If I only had one more day
I would pray to God for more time
To accept that life is a gift He gave me
And mine's worth every dime

If I only had one more day
I would appreciate the ordinary things
I would realize something has to be taken away
Before we found out how much happiness it brings

If I only had one more day
There wouldn't be enough time to appreciate all that's mine
So I have to start looking now before time's up
I know there is so much to shine
