Death Will Come as Epiphany

Good lord, I know I am dying
Good lord, what have I done wrong?
Good lord, I am scared.
What will become of me?

I used to believe what my parents said bout dying
was all a lie,
all just a little joke.
I actually thought everyone lived on.

But now I understand
that people are gonna die
that everyday church bells are gloomily ringing,
that everyday people will be dressed in black and following the coffin.

Good lord, I know I am dying
Good lord, what have I done wrong?
Good lord, I am scared.
What will become of me?

I didn't believe till my Aunt Jill died.
But then I was pretty young, I didn't even cry
but before then I thought it wasn't real
I actaully thought everyone would live on.

Now, I am dying,
what would happen if I didn't believe right now?
Now, I am dying.
And suddenly I understand.

Good lord, I know I am dying.
Good lord, what did I do wrong?
Good lord, I am scared.
What will become of me?

Everything in my whole short life
is coming back to me now.
Everything...everything. Way back, when I was born.
Yes, I understand.

I understand whi I was meant to live.
I understand why my best friend moved away.
I understand why everyone has to die.
Yes, I understand.

And now I'm dying.
I must say good bye to the world.
Everyone, I'm dying.
Farewell and God bless.

Lily,

Excellent expression and feeling here in one of your first posts.  Looking forward to reading more of your work.  Do hope with all my heart that this is not a true story and that you are feeling well.  I think you will find Passions is full of wonderful supportive people always willing to talk or listen if needed.  Best wishes to you!!

Welcome to our family!!  

LW
