The Gift

White Rose

What gift can I leave
this worldly realm
before I, a quiet spirit transcend
to a place beyond the shadows.

What gift can I leave
from my heart to mankind
if not some image of compassion
and hope for children not yet born.

What gift can I leave
if not the noble things I have done
or the inspiring words I have written
to show that there is joy and love
beyond any shadows,strife or wars.

What gift can I leave
if not the memories of my life
to show my children and grandchildren
that life is wonderful but fragile,
beauty is beyond the eyes
and love is immortal
