what-if

"What if" What if you wake up and see R.I.P to my name My fire burning in your soul So angry at yourself for not saying goodnight the night before the news blazed And for the grudges you hold As you stretch forth your hands to my portrait you know I'm with God in his throne In all your sufferings and pains I still tell you that you are blessed What If in our last conversation I asked for your forgiveness Just to make amends When you and I know that I didn't hurt you if we take God as our witness What if you call to confirm my death And hear my parent crying Grieving in pain for my passing Would you be left in regret ? For the food I begged for as I was starving to death What if you walk to my home and see my face on the poster with "Sun rise" and "Sun set" caption, and tears from my eyes on the portrait dripping And my brother say to you "He journeyed to the land of no returning " What if I kiss the grave before our next project? Would you tell the world that I was a prospect?
