Death Imagined - Poem by Angel Morrell

I imagine how life would be,
Should God decide to take you away from me,
I imagine that second they tell me you have
gone away,
Time, I imagine, would stop, I'd hit my
Knees and pray.
Pray to God to bring you back for He does not
give you more then you can bare,
Knowing you would no longer be here.
I imagine people all around me- Their talks
sound as if underwater words,
Nothing they would say, I imagine, would even
Be heard.
I imagine I will walk into our home, see your
things there,
And wonder how will my live with in all of
My despair.
I imagine our bed will become cold, the house
cool and damp,
Everything would look so dark, for your love
Was my only lamp.
I imagine as time goes by people will say..
'It is time to move on',
But how could I when I die the day they
Say you are gone?
I know the time will come when God takes you from
this earth,
I pray to the Lord above, He decides to take
Me first.
To imagine what it would be like to know
you're no longer here,
Is not near as bad as what I would feel,
For if I am not there with you and all of this is real.
However I do know one thing, I would die more everyday,
Starting the second that you went away.
