If I Never Get the Chance
By Terilyn Dumas

    
My final breath may come 
Before I complete my plans on Earth
I pray that day be postponed
But I know this is not in my hands to control
For all the things I want to say
Or could do
May not His will allow
Know my life has metamorphosed
Since that day
That day I saw you
That day we talked
That initial touch
That first glimpse of your smile 
Now and forever
In my heart you'll remain 
If I never get this chance again
Love Always.

 2001 Terilyn Dumas
