If I Die Today

If I die today.
Just put my body on a bed to lay.
Neither weep nor cry for me in vain.
Do not sorrow nor be in pain.
Celebrate my death for I have no one's debt.
For I have lived a life I will never regret.

If at all I never see the break of dawn.
Do not look so sad, do not even mourn.
Do not cry out so loud, for I won't return.
Just rise up, gather yourself, for you can't tell tomorrow might be your turn.

If at all my breath should cease.
Do not let your stress or anxiety increase.
Just kneel down and pray for my soul in heaven to be received.
For there I belong even before I was conceived.

When my eyes close in death.
Just know that I no longer belong to this earth.
I am only on a pilgrimage in this world.
And when it's over, I move over to the next world.

One day I shall reach the cross-road.
I like to call it my final aboard.
Where life & death battle for my soul.
Whoever wins, the other must let go.
Talk now while I still can hear you.
Teach now that I can learn from you.

For a battery has been placed on my heart.
One day it will die and my heart will stop beating.
When a phone battery dies, it can be replaced.
But when that of the heart dies, it can never be replaced.

If tomorrow never comes again.
If the day never breaks again.
If today my breath is taken away.
If at all the sun never rises again.
Know that the memories we share will forever remain.
