What If
What if I was nothing
No presence, no trace
A fleeting thought, a whisper in the wind
Would anyone notice my absence?

Would the sun still rise
And the stars still shine
If I were to vanish without a trace
A forgotten memory in the sands of time

What if I was nothing
A void in the universe
No laughter, no tears
Just an empty shell

Would my absence be felt
Or would I simply fade away
Lost in the vast expanse of nothingness
A forgotten soul, lost in the void

But even if I were nothing
I still hold onto the hope
That somewhere, somehow
I will be remembered, even in my absence.
