If I died today, would anyone grieve for me tomorrow?
Is there someone who cares enough to express
sadness and sorrow?
If I died today, would anyone remember my face, or would I
just fade away without a trace?
If I died today, would anyone need to be consoled with a
hug or would I be cast away before my grave could
even be dug?
If I died today, would anyone tell stories about my life?
Will they reminisce on good times we shared
and stow away all the strife?
If I died today, would anyone stain their cheeks with
tears? I often wonder, does anyone realize that these
are just a few of my fears?
