My Time

Will I die today?

What about my dreams I have yet to live?

What about the stories I have yet to tell?

I can’t die today!

Not yet!

I’m too young.

Look! I painted my nails.

I washed my hair.

I got dressed.

I cooked a meal for goodness sake!

I opened my presents on Christmas day.

Why God?


Why now?

Why did I end up in the ER today?

The shoved needles in my arm.

The doctor was so cold.

No warmth.

No charm.

I’m so scared.

Will I die today?

Is this the day?

Did I say all I wanted to say?

I have not said good bye to any one yet!

Here I am in a cold room

My husband holding my hand.

I’m behind a curtain

Sharing a room with a stranger.

She gets to go home.

I want to go home.

I want my mother.

Where is she?

Am I going to die today?

Will I die before I have truly lived?
