The poet Mary Oliver caught their anxiety in her poem, “When Death Comes”:

“When it’s over, I don’t want to wonder if I have made of my life something particular, and real. I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened, or full of argument. I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.”
