If I had known that would be the last time I hugged you

I would have never let go

If I had known that would be the last time I walked with you

I would have chose the longest road

If I had known that would be our last time we danced

I would have played a never ending song

If I had known that was your last call

I would have never hung up the phone

If I had known that was our last meal

I would have ate a life’s worth feast

If I had known that was our last goodbye

I would have said “daddy, please don’t leave.”

Angela is the mother of Nicole Bouyer. Author & Publisher Juanita Bratcher is her grandmother.
