If I die today, will anyone care?

Will anyone cry, or be able to bear?

Will my friends go home in May,

Or will they pray for a holiday?

Will my special one shed a tear,

Or like the past shadow will she get a beer?

Will my teachers stop teaching,

Or will they waste their time advising?

 

If I die today, will anyone care?

Will anyone cry, or be able to bear?

Will the earth stop and see the stars twinkle?

Or will they start reaping with a golden sickle?

I have heard what you sow is what you reap,

Then why is it that I die in the midst of this heap?

Will my country change if I die?

Or will they keep letting crime get high?

 

If I die today, will anyone care?

Will anyone cry, or be able to bear?

Will my mother be numb or will she go mad?

Will my father stop playing or will he feel bad?

Will a book be written or a movie be made out of my life?

What will happen to the tall girl supposed to be my wife?

Will God forgive me for what I have done?

Or will he send me to hell with my head on the gun?

 

No, I won’t die today,

I will overcome this and die another day.

There are many stories to be told and many hearts to be won,

Battles to be faced and work to be done.

But still a question remains in my mind,

It sounds silly but is one of a kind,

If I die today, will anyone care?

Will anyone cry, or be able to bear?
