Waiting To Die

If I died would you come to my funeral
Would you stand there looking at me, waiting to exhale
Would you miss my smile, my face, and my laughter?
Your chance will be gone in the here after
Will you cry to my mother; saying you're sorry
Don't mind me now, I'm heading to glory
I don't understand the pain that you feel
Now that I'm gone, I'm starting to heal
The pain that I felt on earth when I walked,
Is the pain you will feel until the day you are dropped
Dropped in the earth, with dirt all around you
Our love will meet again, at the gates that will bound you

A very beautiful poem, remember one thing, if a person don t care for you, he/ she never loves you and will never be sorry and we want their s love when we are alive not after death, if your partner is loyal then he ll definately be sorry and why wait for Heaven, you can have him in this world,

Thanks for the comment. This is one of my favorite poems, though I will say, I am very happy with my husband now. This pain was so real at the time.
