When Destiny Calls

by Chandra Sundeep
when destiny calls

When destiny calls

And it’s time to meet my maker

Will I cry over dreams unfulfilled?

Or will I be joyous for a life well lived?

My departure is beyond my control, and desire

Why should I dread for that moment to arrive?

A hidden power controls my future, and my fate

Why should I fret to enter the pearly gate?

One day all my riches will be left behind

And I’ll become one with the ground

My deeds, words and actions will remain

Forever; rest all will be in vain

The future is beyond my control

But the present I can make beautiful

Help others, bring smiles all around

I desire to spread kindness and joys around

I’ll not cry over dreams unfulfilled

Joyous I’ll be for a life well lived

With immense gratitude I will bid farewell

And meet my maker, when destiny calls
