What if flames consume the world?
What if storms flood the towns?
Or if superior beings take over the Earth
or we fall in giant cracks on the ground?

What if the planet becomes remote,
everywhere, the purest desolation,
the human race about to perish
without any single chance of salvation?

I'll still have, in my recollections,
the remembrance of your smile,
I would have a reason to be happy
when the world becomes hostile.

I'll think about all the moments
you've spent close to me,
when it seemed to be the end of the world,
and you were the light that I could see.

I'll simply close my eyes...
Earthquake? Tornado? Lava?
I wouldn't have a clue!
What if the world ends today?
What if?
My life's been complete, since the day that I met you.
:police: © All rights reserved.

Maybe inspired by :icontheindigofeather:'s poem,
What if?If life as we know it ended today, would you fall to your knees and begin to pray?

Or try and make amends for sins of before, and hope it will lead you to heavens door.

Or would you act like you don't want to know, and hope it's all just a show?

Would you hold your love ones tight, or do something crazy on the last night?

But if it's going to end today, do you even have time to say,

Sorry for all your wrongs, or just tell them what you thought all along.

Even the ones who believed it was true, will be shocked that it actually came through.

So in the end there's not much to say, it's the end of the world.

Have a nice day.
(check it out, it's fantastic!), maybe for the idea itself... or just because I wanted a different way to thank.



Did I have anyone in mind when I wrote it?
I did.
Yes, yes, you!
This poem is not romantic (although I sort of wanted to give this illusion), it's about all the support I've received this year, and about the wonderful people I met.
And, if you are reading this, this poem is also for you!
My dear friends, watchers, people who eventually visit my gallery and fave or comment on something... you all have helped me to have a great year, to deal with some situations of my life, my feelings, you've supported me, you've helped me make some of my dreams true.
Maybe you're not aware of how important you've been... this is my way to thank you.

If the world ended today, or on the 21st December, I'd be grateful for all the things I had the opportunity to live, the people I knew, these moments playing of being a writer, the support and advice you've been giving me.
