When death hovers above me
knocking at my door,
whispering my name,
to take me on a journey beyond,
I wonder what I will feel?
Will I look back at life, content
or will it be a bagful of regret?
Will I raise a toast to life’s beautiful moments
or feel, could have let go of tiffs, to create more of them?
Will I be happy at the wealth amassed
or will the balance tilt in favor of my kind deeds?
Will I be remembered for my achievements
or for the smiles I brought to people’s faces?
Will I be able to allay my fears of death
or embrace it with open arms?
These questions often makes me pause and tread differently!
