What kind of legacy will I deliver?
This thought I do consider
What will I leave behind after my time?
Is it my connection to the Divine?
Is it my money and worldly possessions
That I leave on Earth, or is it the lessons
I probably won’t pen the next Great American novel
Or lead a country to its time
Do I leave my writings, my deepest thoughts
Or was all that effort but for naught?
What is it that I am remembered by
Or will the memory of me simply die
How can I make sure that those who recall me
Don’t promptly forget but smile at me
For I brought warmth to their hearts
Lit a flame, ignited a spark
Love is not lost on those who embrace it
To live with grace is to simply face it
That this life is limitless in its potential
To connect to another is essential
