If my eyes should never see another setting sun
If I went to sleep tonight, knowing my days were done
If I should never hear the sound of children at play
If I knew without a doubt, this was my dying day
My daughter, here’s a wish that I hope will come to be
I want to leave a legacy so you’ll remember me
When you’re feeling all alone and want me to be near
Or when monsters come crowding in and you’re filled with fear
May it be that your hand will reach for my book of rhymes
In reading each poem, may you relive happy times…
When I shared a funny rhyme to chase away your pain
Or perhaps you’ll remember how writing kept me sane
Maybe you’ll come upon this little couplet of mine
And you’ll smile through the tears as you read between each line
I hope you’ll be filled with pride knowing my dream came true
My published poem book is my legacy to you
I hope it will ease your pain and bring joy to your mind
Search in every line Mommy’s hugs and kisses to find.
It carries my love, dearest, and some sagacity,
But YOU are my living word and my real legacy!
