If Today Was My Last Day
If today was my last day on this earth and all bets were off.
I wouldn’t waste a single minute but neither would I want to rush it all till the end were my heart stops beating.
I would see my family and thank them for every little thing I forgot to appreciate in the normal stressful days.
I would call up my circle of friends and have one last drink with them on my treat, I would let the silence do the talking.
I would seek out old lovers and foes, tell them all the things I never got to say and hope we could find some peace.
I would write one last song and hope for a bestseller like I always dreamed of, never mind those couldn’t believe.
I would try to find some closure in it all, predict and chant one last meaningful quote for my legacy to hold.
If I was out of hours and out of chances, if only one last try remained.
I would take my girl and take her for one last dance under the blankets, tell her that she was the one and only for me.
I would tell my girl to never forget me but never to forget to live her life, because in the end that’s all we have.
I would write one last letter with the intention of thanking all the people who I have had the pleasure of in my life.
I would raise a glass to the sky and toast to the fallen people who I would soon be joining in some place new.
At the end of the day I would tell them all to go home, let my girl stay and watch the sun go down together one last time.
I would say my goodbyes and ask her to leave me be, I would sit with my throughs and think back while waiting for death to take my hand.
I would do it all of this if today was my last day, I wonder what you would do? If today was your last day?
