Laying in this bed you close to my side. My mind is racing denying me rest. Questions with no answers still prominent in my thoughts. As you lay your head upon my chest.

Our future, what lays ahead, will we still grow old together? Will or will I not depend upon you for total care? A life I lived caring for others, very well my be what I need. These thoughts, what the doctor has said brings despair.

It is true, you never know when you will take your last breath. But being told a illness will bring it sooner than later. Brings a whole new realization to that fact. I no longer want to live just as a spectator.

I want to do the things I always wanted to do. I want to love and live each day as it is my last. A life I took for granted, is now not guaranteed. Every thing I have said and done brought into a whole new contrast.

Have I lived a life in such a way that people won't have to stand up and lie. When my body lays before them, and my soul has departed. Will people be able to say, I lived a life of love and selflessness? Will people be able to speak the truth and not something half hearted?

My life is just a vapor, here today and gone tomorrow. As my time grows near, have I ran the race and completed the course? Have I ran in vain, with no foundation or goal insight? For the wrongs I have done have I shown true remorse?

Have I lived such a way, people see Christ in me? Or have I shown them the world driving them far away? Has my passion and zeal been true, or has it been built on self righteousness? May the life I lived be one that Glorifies God is what I pray.
