Today in deep reflection
thoughts tiptoe thru my mind
have I done my very best?
in this life...
of mine

Were gentle words of comfort
all they had to be?
did I give completely
every part of...
me?

Did these eyes show feeling?
was love alone, enough?
have I always been there?
when times for you...
were rough?

I hope to be remembered
when I'm laid to rest
waltzing with my conscience
have I really...
done my best?

Have I made a difference?
within this troubled world
do my words have meaning?
when inner thoughts...
uncurl

Do I show compassion?
for those who suffer pain
did my words encourage?
was my friendship...
seen

Do my children realize
I'd give my life for them?
was I kind and gentle?
to all of...
fellowman

Do I have true understanding?
speak with guided tongue
have empathy for others?
trying never...
to condemn

Have I made choices wisely?
forgiven, let past go?
learned by mistakes, grew stronger?
let inner spirit...
glow?

Do I set example?
practice what I preach?
open heart to others
though they're...
out of reach?

I just can't help but wonder
what will I leave behind?
if tomorrow starts without me
will I...
ever...
cross your mind?

Will my heart songs linger?
in a sort of special way
this above all...
just wish I knew
will memories...
remain?
