If I Had Known

If I had known the last time I saw you was going to be the last time I'd ever see you...

... I would have hugged you a little tighter and a lot longer.

... I would have studied your face memorizing each and every line.

... I would have reached for your hand and squeezed it hard, never wanting to let you go.

... I would bottled up your scent.

... I would have listened more carefully to your story, gleaning from all your wisdom. 

... I would have told you how beautiful you looked that day.

... I would have insisted on another photograph.

... I would have expressed my sincerest gratitude for all that I have because of you.

... I would have said "I love you" one more time.

... I would have willed you to stay.

If only I had known.
