Too Late

What will I do when
I know I’m going to die
will I drop to my knees
and call out to the sky?

Will I beg for forgiveness
for all the wrong I have done
in the hope I may be reunited
with my loved ones?

Or will I be calm
and accept my fate
understanding that any
repentance will be too late.

When it comes to that time
we are all the same
it may all depend on how
we have played life’s game.

All the money that
you have made
will count for nothing
for death does not trade.

Rich man or poor man
it will not matter
when it comes the time
for our ashes to scatter.
