Rose


Before I Go


When my life has reached its very end,
And I take that final breath;
I want to know I've left behind,
Some "good" before my death.


I hope that in my final hour,
In all honesty I can say:
That somewhere in my lifetime,
I have brightened someone's day.


That maybe I have brought a smile
To someone else's face,
And made one moment a little sweeter
While they dwelled here in this place.

Rose

Lord, please be my reminder
And whisper softly in my ear ...
To be a "giver," not a "taker,"
In the years I have left here.


Give to me the strength I need,
Open up my mind and my soul ...
That I might show sincere compassion,
And love to others before I go.


For if not a heart be touched by me,
And not a smile was left behind ...
Then the life that I am blessed with,
Will have been a waste of time.


Rose

With all my heart, I truly hope
To leave something here on earth ...
That touched another, made them smile
And gave to my life ... worth.
