For One More Day - Poem by Craig Mize

If I had just one more day, that smile would never go away,
And I'll make sure that this would be a better day.
Hold you tight and wipe away them tears of sorrow,
I know that it's raining today, but I'll promise a brighter tomorrow

If I had just one more day I'll show you that I loved you in every way
Prove to you that your beauty always brighten my days.
I would spoil you with all of the love in my heart,
And promise you that my love, this true love is here to stay

But the time has come for us to part different ways
You shall go on and live a grand live and in heaven I'll spend my days
Looking down on you from above, reminiscing about your lovely face
Just waiting patiently to hold you in my arms if only for one more day

    If only I had one more day,
    no, one more hour
    nay, one more minute
    I would have told you
    that the lines are very touching..........
