I Will Celebrate Your Last

Had I known today was the day

I would have held you longer and sighed

I would have spoken a little sweeter

I would have noticed your last goodbye

 

Had I realized these were the final hours

I would have lingered just a longer while

I would have put off the other till tomorrow

I would have acknowledged your last smile

 

Had I only recognized this was the end

I would have laughed more

I would have loved deeper

I would have cherished to the core

 

So, today is the day I will celebrate

Today is the day I will not lie

Today is the day I will remember

I will not let another moment slip by

 

I will live a little deeper

I will love a little stronger

I will hold a little tighter

I will linger a little longer

 

I will laugh more, love more, cherish more

I will dream more, share more, hope more

No one knows the hour of the coming thunder

No one knows the moment they will be put asunder

 

I will celebrate your last step

I will celebrate your last hug

I will celebrate your last tooth

I will celebrate you with truth

 

I will celebrate your last call

I will celebrate your last visit

I will celebrate your last post

I will celebrate you the most

 

I will celebrate your last child

I will celebrate your last smile

I will celebrate your last love

I will celebrate your life above

 

I will celebrate your last dream

I will celebrate your last hope

I will celebrate your last desire

I will celebrate you and finally cope

 

My heart will rejoice

My mind will cherish

My body will mourn

My soul will not perish

 

You are now home with My Father

For this, His Son did devote

To dance, to celebrate, to rejoice

For had I just known, I could have taken note.

Written on the day a very special person said goodbye to this life…

I didn’t know you very long, Derek Tabor; yet, your impact on my life will be for eternity.

Looking forward to seeing you again one day on the other side…
