Most of us are in denial about death
yet none of us can avoid it.
Seldom do we plan for the inevitable;
left instructions with a health directive?

What preparations have you made;
finished off the bucket list;
told those close you love them
so that you can leave with no regrets?

Leave no business unfinished
for tomorrow may not come!
Really, have you made your will
or will the courts divvy up your funds?
