Asking for a name list

To cry I’ll be able to make
How many people
After my death?
Who are they?
What are they of mine today?
Did I love them?
Did I do for them?
Why they would cry?
Did I cry?
For why? For whom?
Yes, I’m dying soon.

    We all are dying soon, we start this path from the moment of creation. Who is crying? Death should be a time for celebration. Excellent write.
