Legacy for Life

This heart has turned to lead my son, that I must leave this place.
These eyes may never look again upon your shining face.
But in my wake I leave behind
these lessons learned for you to find,
wisdom laced with love combined
to guide you in life's race.
Be sure to know thyself my son
and to thine self be true.
Be passionate and diligent
in everything you do.
Be thoughtful son, be generous
to every soul you meet.
Never be afraid to try
though you may face defeat.
Keep courage burning in your heart.
Be curious in mind.
Love to learn and learn to love
and leave all doubts behind.
Be grateful for life's blessings son
and never cease to dream.
Never lose your sense of wonder
or your self-esteem.
Don't be mired in worry son
or laden with regret.
Never give up hope or faith.
The best may happen yet.
