    Poem Commentary

    This I wrote one day when I was thinking about my father who had taken his own life in 1991.  I still feel a hurt for what he did to our family and sometimes feel that I will never forgive him.

    Would You?

    If I died today, would you remember me tomorrow?
    If I died today, would you be in sorrow?
    If I died today, would you even care?
    If I died today, would you ask how or where?
    If I died today, would my happiness stick?
    If I died today, would it make you sick?
    If I died today, would it make you cry?
    If I died today, would you ever say goodbye?
    If I died today, would you go on with your life?
    If I died today, would you find a new wife?
    If I died today, would you still love me in the end?

    I can understand where you might be coming from here, I don't fear death and i hope when i die people won't cry and even when you can't see it, you are appreciated....

    I smitten by your vintage piece... Phantom Gargoyle

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
