If Today Had Been My Last Day

Glass daggers carved through the air,
Causing pain, I can’t stand to bear
Throbbing agony shot through my brain
Blacking out, my being had been slain

I awoke with little vision
And doctors making incisions
My mind verged on the edge of a void
As if I had been wholly destroyed

Lying down without sensation,
A time set for contemplation
I am alive today, but what if?
What if I had fallen off the cliff?

If today had been my last day,
Could I leave with my life astray?
Now, to the fullest, I will portray
As if today is my very last day.


The author's comments:
I was inspired by the idea that any second could be our last, so we should make the best of the time we have.
