If I Die Today

If I die today,
Would the last words I said be cold?
Would bitterness be what’s left for people to hold?

If I die today
Could you honestly say my life was the best?
Did I go after my dreams or live in unrest?

If I die today,
Would I be proud of my life?
Or would disappointment hold my hand as I die?

If I die today,
What would my legacy be,
Is it something I would want to see?

If I wake up tomorrow,
Would I do something differently?
