Heritage – a striking word
Is something that we all have
Others will ponder
My children reflect
They know the good and the bad
When I am gone they will see
Remember the truth
Of the way I live my life
Inspires me to wise choices
Do not speak rashly
Those words will cut the heart out
Of the little ones
Trustworthy envoys
Will bring healing to the soul
Joy to the hurting
Emotional, Spiritual
Consider these three
Process with integrity
This relationship journey
Seeking truth on every front
Do not be afraid
Thinking, feeling and loving
Integrate all three of these
With those living close to you
You’ll discover joy
Loneliness can be a gift
I’ll surface the heavy rocks
That are weighing down my soul
Direction can come
Do not be afraid
To ask the real hard questions
You were built for joy
Those of us who know the pain
Who still live in it today
Can listen and understand
And offer you hope
