If Tomorrow Never Comes...

If tomorrow never comes,
Let me dance today to the rhythm of my tunes,
Sing songs of sorrow and those of praise,
Do all that my heart has been desiring always,
Because tomorrow may never come for that.

If tomorrow never comes,
Allow me to confess publicly,
And take all the blames of acting cowardly,
For having a crush on you but all long staying silently,
You will call me names but for today only,
Because tomorrow may never come for that.

If tomorrow never comes,
I will praise my neighbour next door,
Who goes out one and comes home many,
Then all night the rhythm of her bed keeps me awake by singing "kuchu...kuchu...kuchu"
Making me change my sleeping routine.
I will praise her for not practicing segregation of colour, height or weight.
I will praise her the whole day,
Because tomorrow may never come for that.

If tomorrow never comes,
I will say I saw it at the market places,
Those old grannies seated all day just to earn something from their small shaky businesses,
Stacks of rejection on their faces as they get snubbed and their ingredients branded not fresh for being burnt by the sun.
I'll say I saw them faking smiles,
Laughing and crying at the same time,
I promise not to hide anything,
Because tomorrow may never come for that.

I am not a prayer warrior,
But if tomorrow never comes,
I will ask God not to take me to heaven,
But to give me a chance to pardon my transgressions,
To seek deliverance and surrender my life to Him,
Because tomorrow may never come for that.

Dear God,
If tomorrow never comes,
Grant me the opportunity today,
To live this day to the fullest,
To have all the fun and spread love all over.
And when it's over I'll call it a day well lived,
Then you can take me peacefully,
Because tomorrow may never come for that.
