Beyond Relationships

You know when I'm dead....

 

Your tears will flow...
But I won't notice...
Cry for me now instead!

 

You will send flowers...
But I won't see...
Send them now instead!

 

You'll say words of praise...
But I won't hear…
Praise me now instead!

 

You'll forget my faults...
But I won’t discern...
Forget them now instead!

 

You'll miss me then...
But I won't feel...
Miss me now instead…

 

You'll wish...
You could have more time with me...
Have it now instead!

 

You'll wish...
You could have spent more on me...
Spend now instead!

 

Let us embrace one another now!

 

For when you hear I'm gone

You'll find your way to my house to pay condolence

But we haven't even spoken in years

Why not reach out now to comfort me?

 

After my departure

You will grace my residence with sympathy

Sweet messages; noted only by those I left behind

Why not send me them now that I can read and reply?

 

Spend time with every person around you

Exalt their happiness and dignify their dreams

Be them families; friends; acquaintances.

Because we never know time will fold on us

 

Make people feel Special.

After all, what is Life for?

Life is too short to be distant.

So, love all, forgive and care for all.
