A New World

What if I do not wake up
in the morning?
What if it came to call without
any warning?
What would be left
in my wake?
Would people arrive to see what
they could take?
Would they be shocked to see
that I was gone?
Or would they say they saw it
all along?
Would I be missed and hard
to replace?
Or is there someone waiting to
take my place?
What if I do not wake up
in the morning?
Do not weep for me,
a new world is calling.
