    When I die will you walk away with a joyfully cry
    knowing that I can now look into my fathers eyes

    or will you walk away and lie
    telling everyone that there is no God

    with a look of disgust on your face
    as if you are living a life that needs no grace

    will you deny that my life was spent with Christ
    or will you think to yourself
    “she was a good soldier who fought a good fight”

    when I die will your world, as you know it be the same
    or will you commit your life to God and begin to make a change

    will you try to press forward each day because you must move on
    or will my death be the storm that takes your calm

    will you remember me as happy with a smile upon my face
    as if time is standing still enough for one last goodbye or one more embrace

    will my testimony of God’s love and His faith be like an inspiring song
    played long after my death, played long after I am gone

    Yes, this piece does cause one to wonder about self, must be because it's posed so on point.
