What would the mother tell her daughter
If she knew she wouldn’t make it home
What would the husband say to his wife
If he knew he’d never come back
Across the sea?
What would the teenager tell his brother
If he knew they’d never come
Face to face again?
What would you tell me
If you knew the next time you saw me
I’d be in a wooden box, surrounded by flowers?
Everyone acts like they’ll be around tomorrow.
But the funny thing about life is:
We were never granted we’d survive yesterday;
God didn’t promise we’d get through today;
And who knows if you’ll wake up tomorrow.
