If I Should Wake Before I Die

If I Should Wake Before I Die

*

If I should wake before I die, I might smile.

My smile would be warm

My smile would be white

My heart might miss a note

And my body might take flight.

*

If I should wake before I die, I might open into a dream.

The dream of breathing easy

Where my mind can finally see

The dream of being wide-awake —

When my soul is flying free.

*

If should wake before I die, the trees might burst into song

Their branches would shake and shudder

And sprinkle new seeds onto the ground

Leaves, turning color after color —

Shedding light from town to town

The revelation of grasping the day

The sunshine the birds and the trees

What you have before you is a gift

One so special like a jump in the leaves.
