Hypothetically Factual - Poem by Stanley Cooper

If we died tomorrow
We could count the tears
Of Sorrow

First and second day of tears
Perhaps a third or fourth, then
Only memories remaining of our years

We can ask, looking back at the past
Was it worth the strife?
Our lives asunder, day one through the last

Actually, though hypothetically faced
It’s sadly pertinent
‘Cause actually it’s factually based

Isn’t it?
