Just One More Day

If I could have just one more day
I'd gently touch your face
I'd look into your deep eyes
And feel your loving embrace.

If I could have just one more day
I'd try not to cry
I'd just enjoy the time we had
Though I do not want to die.

If I could have just one more day
I'd whisper to you
"Do not cry for I'm in love
And I know you love me too".

If I could have just one more day
I'd wipe your tears away
I'd make it so you didn't know
That this was our last day.

If I could have just one more day
I'd softly kiss your cheek
I'd tell you that inside I am strong
Though outside I look weak.

If I could have just one more day
I'd want to say so much
I'd want to hear you laugh again
I'd want to feel your touch

If I could have just one more day
I'd look into your eyes
And these are the things that I would say
As I said goodbye …

"Do not cry for me, my love
I am not really gone
And one day we will see each other
And that time won't be long.

"When the sun rises
Please think each day of me
Through you I will be able to live
To love, to breathe, and to see.

"When the sun sets again
Know that I'm with you
And know that I am watching
To keep you safe too.

"And when your time comes as well
I will be there to see
The sun shine warm upon your face
As you come back to me."

So if I had just one more day
I'd tell you not to cry:
"Do not cry, my darling love,
Because this is not goodbye".
