what would you do?

What would you do if i left this world today
Would you cry and fall down crushed
Or would you question the science of life?
Would you curse God for what He did?

Would you stop your daily business to think of what we had
And would you lose your breath when the news hit home
Would you come to my funeral and shed a tear
Or would you quietly wish i was at your side?

Would you look at pictures and laugh and cry
And think back on the crazy things we did
Would you burn a candle and say a prayer
Or would you scream, alone, at what i did?

What would you do if i left you to face the world alone
With no one to hold your hand?
Would you wish it was you who had gone instead
Or would you just hope and prayer that this was all a bad joke…

What would you do?
Would you care?
Would you leave it to?
What would you feel?

Would you lock yourself in a room and never come out?
And hope thats its me who comes a knocking,
Coming to take you back to my Place?
Would you ever do that for me?

Would so simply erase me from your mind
Just a blimp on your radar that drifed out of range?
Would you burn my memoirs and pieces of me,
the pieces we used to treasure and were so dear?

I left this world today and looking down from the Eternal Place,
I watched your movements, you hands, your face…
And what i saw was not expected, a smile, a look, a swirling tear,
a wish to me that i was safe and a note to say watch over me, im still here…

what would you do?

Artist's Description

I’ve aways wondered how people would react if i had to die. (this might sound morbid) but i often imagine this, their faces and reactions. It fascinates me, peoples emotions to situations. So this a big question and fight i have with myself at the thought of the world i leave behind…
