if i died today...
the world would be a better place
if i could leave without a trace...

if i died today...
would you mourn me tomorrow?
would you miss me next week?
would you remember me in a year?

if i died today...
would you hold me one last time?
would you give me one last kiss?
would you whisper i was loved?

if i died today...
would you shed a single tear?
would you forgive me all my sins?
would you live and love again?

if i died today...
if i take the pain i've dealt before
close the gates of heavens door...

    This is deep and very thought provoking. I honestly hope that when I die I can somehow look back to Earth and see what happens. To be able to see if I really made any sort of difference or impact on anyone. What I do know is you have made an impact on me. I would mourn you, I would always remember you, and I would hope that you have finally found a peace and happiness that we can not achieve here in this world.
