If your children are with you and I am not
Remember I still love them and you with all I’ve got

You have my words that I have said 
You have my writings that I hope you have read

This is my legacy that I leave you
It isn’t much but is the best I could do

I hope you can see the truth in what you read
It contains years of experience and guidance that you need

I am sorry for the hard times and bad
I am sorry for the mistakes I made as dad

See my mistakes as you are meant to
A guide of things that you should not do

See the good that I did do 
It came from God in me and you

Read and study your bible and follow Gods heart
It will guide you better and keep the world from tearing you apart

Don’t read too much into things 
It will spoil the truth that life brings

Don’t worry for tomorrow God takes care of it
Don’t worry about the past or it will become your death pit

Take care of today and the next today when it comes
Don’t get in a hurry and don’t live life on the run

You have a good life you can have a good time
Just follow our Lord and you will never be blind

Remember me laughing remember me kind
I am with our Father, thinking of you and haveing a great time

Love you always and forever my darlings.
