If tomorrow were my last day
I would lie in my lounge chair
Rest in the sun
Listen to the birds sing
Watch the deer nibble grass
The geese enjoy the tennis court
The turkeys walk through the woods
And the groundhog munch on clover.
I might walk through the wildflowers
Look up at the blue sky, with clouds floating above me.
If tomorrow were my last day,
I would be grateful for all that I
Have been given,
Family, friends, music, beauty,
Books, art, my beloved animals,
The experiences of living.
I would be grateful especially
For love, kindness, and tenderness.
At the moment of death,
I want my entire consciousness
To be filled with love.
I want the culmination of my life
To be the awareness
And only love.
