Before I Go...
When my life has reached its very end,
And I take that final breath;
want to know I've left behind,
Some "good" before my death.
I hope that in my final hour,
In all honesty I can
That somewhere in my lifetime,
I have brightened someone's day.
That maybe I have brought a smile
someone else's face,
And made one moment a little sweeter
While they dwelled here in this place.
be my reminder
And whisper softly in my ear ...
To be a "giver," not a "taker,"
In the years I have left here.
to me the strength I need,
Open up my mind and my soul
That I might show sincere compassion,
And love to others before
For if not a heart be touched by me,
And not a smile was left behind ...
Then the life that I am blessed
Will have been a waste of time.
With all my heart, I truly hope
To leave something here on earth ...
touched another, made them smile
And gave to my life ... worth.

The Letter "C"
I'm lying here in bed tonight,
Wondering if everything will be all right.
See, I have this stuff in
And they keep doing test after test.
Dr's are trying to get me ready for the big day,
Will they get it
all? Will they make it go away?
All of these questions linger in my mind,
Why in me, did this they have to find?
don't understand, I keep asking why??
Will I live? Will I die???
I worry all the time, I can't sleep, I can't eat.
wonder if this thing I can beat??
I seem to shake and tremble all the time,
But to all that see me, I look fine.
not fine, I'm scared and I want to cry.
But I don't have time, I have to fight, I have to try,
To take some control
of this stuff inside me,
And this stuff begins with the Letter 'C'.
