If I Die Tonight.... - Poem by Poornima Kanasen

If I die tonight,
Will you feel my lost?
Am I worth your tears?
Will my absence be felt?

If I die tonight,
Will you hark back the pleasant memories?
That you and I shared,
Will I live forever in you heart?

If I die tonight,
Will you attend my funeral?
Will you smile for me, then?
Will you whisper your love into my ear?
Will you caress my face softly?
Will you stroke my hair gently?

If I die tonight,
Will you be there, actually?
Will I then get a true kiss?
A kiss upon my death, never did I imagine…

Am I worth that?
What do I entitled for?
Tell me, speak to me,
Mi amor…

If I die tonight,
Will you forget me?
Will you not shed few tears for me?
Will my departure signify you of anything?
Will my death be overlooked?

If I die tonight,
Shall you leave the past unattended?
Will you go forth without looking back?
Will you not dig into the past?
For the sake of me,

If I die tonight,
Tell me, will you ever miss my presence?

Will you or will you not…

If I die tonight,
Have I missed you forever?
Will I not see you, again! ! !

    I admire your style of writing,
    I find your perspective on death quite interesting and
    less morbid than mine
