Am I afraid to Die?


Recommended Posts

Am I afraid that I will die?


To say I’m not would be a lie


its not the fear of the unknown


but to leave my family all alone


my kids are young and being shaped


in love and kindness they should be draped


the world’s a cold, unforgiving place


and filled with problems they will face


I want to be here in times of need


with a helping hand or loving deed


I love them more than life itself


and that is why I guard my health

Your last line is most significant. There's no point dwelling on things beyond our control-- but some things are. There's also much truth in the old saying that the best things in life are free--- though that is perhaps a moot point when family obligations are in the equation. :smile:
