When I am dead,

I hope the words etched

Above my head

Describe how I inspired others.


When they reminisce,

let it be with love

I wish to have left wisdom

in my living.


When stories are told of my antics

may I be painted the heroine.

Let them say with a hearty laugh

that I made them smile.


I pray that when I am gone,

 I have left the mark of friendship.

A spark of kindness

and a bucket of joy.


I hope that people

hold me in high regard.

May my light

 shine  with every recollection.

What good is living life if you don't share all the experiences, mistakes, and knowledge you have gained? I am a grandmother, a Jr. High Teacher for 15 years, a wife of 31 years, a mother of two grown children, and I want to share my experiences.

  1. Better to had people laugh the cry. I like your thoughts in the poem. Thank you.

Write. Talk. Tell me everything.
