"Every Soul Shall Taste Death"

Today was the day dad requested I take a day-off
Little did he know he was soon to go, his soul to take-off
A planned surgery for 7th January did not take place
God chose this way, planned to take him away by His Mercy and Grace
Allah says, "Every soul shall taste death" so anytime can be your turn...
Your life here is short even though you thought to God you"ll never return
Your here for a purpose, this world is no circus of freedom and play
But an obligation we must follow, not wait till tomorrow but prepare every single day
Be ready with your book of deeds, it will determine whether you fail or succeed
Else a big price you'll have to pay!
Who then will help you? If only you had a clue!
That in your grave alone in dark you'll lay!
The Questions will start...
And if you had a sincere heart
Then in peace you'll spend the rest of the days!
But if you had a bad heart and from this world you depart
Then you'll regret the rest of your days!

"Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing)."

(Quran, Surah Al-Imran, verse 185)
