When our time is near

when is our time to go , do we know our time comes near 
when do we leave our relatives and friends behind 
bleeding from grief 

if the time is there 
what do we say , what do we see before we close our eyes 
do we leave a tear ... do we go with fear 

is it heaven we will rise to or will we end up in hell 
breathing sulfur gasses and the sound of screaming souls we hear 

do we have a date written on our back ? 
and can we see it coming when our time comes near 

i don't know .. it won't keep me awake ... but this is the one thing i fear 
to die young , and leaving your family right here

    You've named one of my greatest fears; leaving my family behind. No one knows how much time they have left, but we all must know how to make the most of each day. Thanks for this piece, Marco. Blessings, Donna
