IF I HAVE TO DIE
IT NEEDS TO MATTER
A day will come when this will be, could be a sunrise, a sunset no more,
I can not imagine being gone, leaving this world behind appears unreal.
A life is special, all life as it is to be celebrated, the mark you leave behind,
Regrets, that which never was or could not be accomplished is a thought.
Our purpose for being here as it is only a short time compared to the birth of time,
What is it that’s to be learned from our visit to a land with more mystery always.
Discoveries are made as we search and explore a world so large but appears to get smaller,
What we have learned has helped our survival just as it does damage just the same.
If I have to die it needs to matter, I pray that I will one day be heaven bound,
If I have to go away then before my journey I wish to help another live one more day.
