If Perchance I Die

If perchance that I die
I die before I wake
I ask that thou not lie
I ask for my names sake

If perchance that I die
I die here all alone
I ask that you bury me
Not leave me a chew bone

If perchance that I die
And thou are with me too
I ask that someone will come
And bury me and you.
 
Perchance that I should die
Not that I intend soon
I wouldn’t want to lie.
So please grant my last boon

If perchance that I die 
And thou does not me see
I pray someone will let you know
So thou can shed a tear for me

    Mandy; This is a sad poem. I know that we all get that feeling sometimes. especially when we live alone. I live by myself and that is hard. That's why i write. So you too, stay here and write. Every Thing Happens in Time. By the way - I have a poem here by that name. Lucilla

    Dear Golden, I will shed a tear or two for you, if I am still around. However, poets like you are forbidden to die! Enjoy the writing! Thanks for visiting.
