if i die tonight

If i die tonight, what would I leave?
Huge debt or an empire; a legacy?
will i die by my lonesome of beside a grieving family?
will i finish what i've started or they remain incomplete?

have i been a good friend?
a good child?
a good brother?
 a good student?
have i been a good everything?
oh, the things i would give to know,
and to make it up to those that i fall short.

if i die tonight will people forgive me?
if i die tonight will God show me mercy?
If i die tonight will people mourn,
or will they be happy that i am gone?

if i die tonight how long would it take
for her to find someone who would take my place
who would take care of her, cherish and love her,
with love that'd renew with each passing day?
I hope it wouldnt take long
let not my passing be a cause for sorrow.

if i do die tonight please dont weep for me.
kullu nafsin dza'ikatul maut; a taste of death will come for those who have breathed
if i do die tonight, please pray for me.
take lessons from the story of my life,
let not my mistakes happen to thee.

What I said to a friend of mine when she asked me...

Friend: ... Bear, what do guys usually feel when their girlfriend always call them?

Me : Define always?

Friend: like every day?

Me: I don't know. If you ask me, it depends. If you see each other on daily basis then it makes no sense to call each other every day, does it? But if you're like 6000 miles apart and it takes you guys 15 000 years to see each other again, then I guess it's ok. 

Friend : That exaggeration. LOL. But seriously though, wouldn't you feel suffocated?

Me: Nah, if you like her, it wouldn't matter. for me, i don't mind. the person i hope to marry is somewhere far far away. So if she calls me, I'd be happy to drop everything and talk to her. even if she just called me yesterday.

Friend : Hmmmm

Me : Friend, love is simple. We are the ones who make it complicated. If you miss someone, tell him. let him know. Love is simple, Love is easy, Love is pure. We are the ones who make it hard on ourselves. we expect so much, hope so high, and yet we forget the little things that matter. Be thankful of the opportunity that you get to see, talk to and spend time together. Others wish that they are in your shoes.
