Is not to be remembered for the things you did not,
but for things, you did.
Not for what you took,
but for all, you once did give.
For the strength you gave, to those of no will...
your patience, guidance, kindness,
never a second thought
with never a reward, a thank you..sought.
The purpose of life...
is to leave behind memorable hugs
if you are remembered for how good it felt to hug you
even when gone, you'll be forever cuddled.
"note to self" for sure,
hug loved ones more.
NOT ONLY "DO" YOU LOVE, SO "ARE" YOU LOVED.
If there is joy because I lived
if smiles breaks through where tears dwell
if my name is remembered fondly as I do the name Mary,
then I too, have served my purpose well.
Know your role, play it well ...
so others too, can pass on, the true meaning of life...
