Memories of me

When I’m gone, what will you see?
Will your memories be kind to me?
Will all those moments that we shared
Reflect how much I truly cared.

Will my husband, remember our first embrace?
The first time ever he saw my face
Will he remember a blushing bride?
My devoted support at his side

Will my children remember my moments of bliss? 
A first smile, a warm embrace, a tiny kiss
Tears of pride, of sadness and many joys 
My boundless love for my precious boys

Will my friends, smile and say
She could be fun in her own way
Her friendship was a valued gift
And sometimes helped my spirit to lift

A lifetime of memories is quite a collection
But I wonder, as I sit in reflection  
Will you remember me, 
As I remember me
