If I should die, think only this of me…
I’m as helpless as one can be
I don’t care who or what I leave behind
Because I am leaving this world without a dime.
I’m horrible with people
That’s why this poem will have no sequel
I’m afraid of dying
But I won’t leave without trying.
I will do what I believe to be right
And never give up without a fight.
My dear mother please forgive me
For I have wronged you more than you and I can see.
My honourable father please trust me
For in this world I will try to honour thee.
Brother, you know everything I do
So before I leave, just know… I love you.
My fantastic friends I have to say
This friendship will have to end, one day
When I leave this world please try to remember…
Time waits for no man, and no one lives forever.
