A Message To My Loved Ones
I can see that look on your face
When you visit and smile at me.
I can hear that catch in your voice
When you say, "Hi Mom, it's me!"
I feel your tears on my cheek
When you kiss my face.
I feel your tender touch
From your warm embrace.
So, if I don't smile at you
And I call you another name
Or if I do not kiss you back
Or squeeze your gentle hand.
Please remember I am not here
But on a different plane.
Cause this body is no longer mine
And my journey is near the end.
