The Day When I 'Die'

As i am laying down to rest,
My heart is pumping at its best,
As many of my people arrive as guest,
Coz today, my life will be put to test.

The guests are not in their usual mood,
Nor they want to eat any food,
The only thing they done was silently stood,
Beside my large and lifeless hood.

For the first time my body was laid with rose,
After a big, fateful series of oxygen dose,
I was in center of life and death
which the latter i chose,
The doctor raised his head, by taking my hose.

Everyone has come, friend or foe,
Sympathy or happiness, whatever they show,
I'll not be coming again, they all know,
They just stood beside me, every head bent low.

As i watched far away, very quiet place,
Standing and seeing, with silent gaze,
As i started and finished my life's race,
All that I can see, is a wrapped face.......
