If

If we knew the day our life would end
Would we take the choice of knowing when
Our eyes would see the last sunrise
That bathes in light, a breathless sky
Of colors never seen before
Or rays that never felt so warm
Upon a face that's well aware
Of how many gifts we're given here
Like winds that whistles lullabies
While swaying trees and rustled leaves
Dance to nature's symphony
That plays for all we leave behind
The gentle notes of precious time
That passes by us day and night
A wonder sometimes out of sight
Believing there's another day
Then knowing if we rest our eyes
What time is left we dreamt away


If we knew the day our life would end
Would we take the choice of knowing when
Old friends would touch for one last time
With thoughts of laughter, one more cry
With souls who made us dare to dream
Whose words have brought an inner peace
Do we burden them with what we know
Do we share with them a last goodbye
A lesson learned of precious time
Though borrowed, it is ours alone
To use it wisely before it's gone
If we knew the day our life would end
Would we take the choice of knowing when
For some that day, is when life begins
