If I Died Now

Nothing would change if I died now
I would still be by your side
I may be gone, but I'm not going anywhere.
Even though you cannot see me any longer,
just know that I'll be there.

At midnight when you are asleep, 
I will watch over you until the sun rises.
Then, in the morning when you awake
we will spend the day together, 
even though you are now alone.
I would not be sad if I died now.
Because, I would still have you near.

Tears would flow at the thought of
everything I can no longer do.
I would never find my one true love, 
or be able to have children.
We wouldn't get to travel like you always wanted to.
But, I wouldn't let it depress me.

I hope you will not let it ruin your life, either.
I would want you to be happy, 
and celebrate our favorite holidays.
It will be difficult without me around.
But, I would miss the fun if you didn't celebrate.

If I died now you wouldn't even know I was gone.
I would do what ever I could 
to make you smile again.
I will hold your hand, when you are afraid.
And wipe away your tears, when you are sad.
I will blow the dark clouds away 
so the sun can shine down on you.

It would rain on the flowers, 
when you forget to water them.
Because, I know how those bright blooms make you smile.
I would wrap my arms around you on winter days,
and keep you from the cold.

I guess I would be your dark angel, your guardian.
Always there to protect you and keep you from harm.
I will love you no less than I ever did.
If I died now.

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Andrea. I think my family knows how I feel about them, even though I haven't expressed anything quite like this to them. My family knows that I write poetry, but they have not read any of it, yet. :)

    Kelly,------ ~ Did you really think I'd leave without stopping by to say Good-bye. Never, Muwahahahaha! Why the word alone sounds -forever and difficult. LOL, I love this place and the poets. A couple of soup friends and I are taking a short vacation. REMEMBER! The Best Thing About Leaving is the "RETURN." I will leave in good faith, in hopes you don't forget me, and you are looking forward in having me visit you and your poems in the future. HAHA, I will bring a new me when I return. "I Can't wait to see you again:) If you ever want me to read a certain poem or you wish to say hi... Drop by my E-Mail Address. :) Sincerely yours ~Always & Forever~ The Sweet Poet Destroyer

    I don't like that word, either! But, I guess I have to say goodbye for now, Linda. Sometimes, we do need to take a break and get away every now and then. I am looking forward to your return, though! So, I will just say, see you later, PD! :)
