When it's time to meet that big man in the sky

or the eternal peacefulness

The golden arches

Or the gates of purgatory

Will you remember the times you had?


In a plane between your world and the next

Your feet at the entrance

Your past, present, and future nonexistent

Will you remember the times you had?


The times you spent worrying over

Bills, tests,

Guys, girls

The tiny things in life

Will they matter?


The times when you said that one thing

You didn't need to say it

You knew it was wrong,

But you said it


The days that flipped your world upside-down

Decisions, good or bad, useless

Regrets made

No control of the present

Will you remember the times you had?


The nights spent awake

Contemplating the conspiracies of the world

Are aliens real?

Am I an alien?


Moments of silence

Suddenly broken by quiet laughter

Remembering that one joke that could make you laugh for days

Then returning to silence


Your family

Friends

Loved ones

Yourself


Will you remember the times you had?
