This is not a cry for help but a cry for love and empathy. We have only one life to live and should live it fully. We should not regret our choices but learn from them. Just don’t learn from them by not giving it your all. All love to those that you love, letting them know as much as possible that you love them and miss them. All help to those that need it, as much as we can. All understanding and empathy, especially to love ones, but to strangers as well.
I wrote the following during a sensitive moment and no, it is not a poem. More like a pouring out of feelings I had to get down and out of my head. I know I am not alone in these feelings so thought I would share.
If I died tomorrow
If I died tomorrow would you care?
If I died tomorrow would you regret not contacting me and staying silent?
Would it make a difference to you if I am not here?
Would you beg for the time back?
Would you cry yourself to sleep?
Would you miss our times together?
The laughs, the hugs, the talks, the smiles and the tears shared?
Would you look at pictures, realizing I was the one taking them, so not many of me to remember?
We don’t have forever, only a short time together.
Once it’s our time to go, that’s it.
Only memories and pictures to turn to and stories others have to tell.
Don’t waste the time we have by being hung up on your beliefs and hard “headedness”.
My love is so great and given freely.
I need that love in return, just as anyone does.
So again I ask,
If I died tomorrow, would you care?
