If This Was Your Last Day

Chrish is a poetry writer who loves to paint, nature and dog lover, who write for herself and happy to share it with you.


If death is the only thing that put things

Into perspective

Then thinking my own death can be the

Best favor I can do for my life, reflecting to all

The unquestioned of an earthly expectations.

Then I started from a serious self confrontation

What else in this world is more serious than

Having a life of obligations?

Then my head started to question the unquestioned

What if I died today? how did I live my life

before I died? Was it worth it?

Was I happy? Was I happy the person I become before my death?

Maybe the worth it to question is, was there

Love in that life? Did I give enough love and

Kindness for myself and to other people?

Did I spent my time in the life

That I love?

Or was it a life made up of things

That wasted my time which I should've

Known to let the distractions go?

Did my life work so much and live less?

Did I brought more happiness to my life

And the people I cared most?

Was all the things I did was better?

If I died today, would I be happy?

Would I be missed? Was this world

Become a little better because i was there?

If I died today, could I afford to tell myself

It was worth it? That yeah maybe yes,

Simply because; I have been Live, I have

witnessed the world in its perfect form.

I've heard the rain singing, I have seen the wind

Whispering to all the trees around,

I know the smell of the earth after the rain fall,

I've seen the leaves falling in motion,

I know the rhythm of the rivers, and the oceans

Raging waves.

It was all worth it. Was it?

Here I am again, sitting all alone

Pleasing the moon to hide

For just a little more moment until

I'm done whispering to the settling sun

Of all my thoughts and thinking about

The passing of my days.

There's no guarantee for tomorrow's

But one thing I'm sure of,

If I died today

it was worth it

I have been Live, I was happy.

Yes Ms Woods absolutely that.

But we are busy people trading ourselves for material things and ambitions every day, and that's reality.

While I'm glad I realize those things at my age. All thanks to the Author of Salvation for the book I have now.

Thanks a lot For the visit Ms Woods!

Sending power hugs!

It's a thought-provoking poem, Treshty. I always believe that life is a miracle. Now it's up to us that how we spend our life. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Very well written, Chrish- much appreciated. We should live our each day as if it could be our last day. Tomorrow’s are never promised. Life for humans will always be a fluctuating experience. So, Make today a beautiful day.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 16, 2021:

We should all approach each day as if it could be our last. That would surely put things in perspective! I think most of us would worry less about tomorrow. We could then bring as much love and light into each day as possible.
