When the Time Comes

When the time comes

When my time arrives,

For my soul to leave the earth,

Will death come to my surprise,

Or have I lived life for its worth;

To give my answer,

To be nothing but honest,

I’m not ready to leave,

There’s much more to accomplish;

So much to do,

And so little time,

I live life day by day,

For one day the world may be mine;

When my time arrives,

For my soul to leave the earth,

Will death come to my surprise,

Or is my name a curse;

People will question,

If they will really be missed,

The answer to that,

Is simply this;

Their will always be someone,

Who has you in their heart,

There will always be someone,

Who will mourn when you depart;

When my time arrives,

For my soul to leave the earth,

Will death come to my surprise,

Or have I lived life for its worth.
