My Parting Gifts

I have been called to leave you much sooner than I planned.  My material things are limited; I have nothing for you to hold.  So before I part, I give from my heart, to you the following advice.  

Accept you were born with a special gift, one that is unique to you.  Embrace it and use it wisely; allow that gift to shine through.  Forgive the past and live in the present; today is really a gift.    Our time here is borrowed so leave with no regrets.  Above all else believe in yourself, especially when no one else does.  That will take all the courage that you have; just suck it up and march on. 

The lights are out and the door is locked, my departure time has come.   I wish that I had more to leave.  Farewell my loves please live in peace and enjoy a happy life.
