There are so many things I want to do
There are so many things I want to say
There are so many people
I want to hug and say, “I love you.”
And perhaps I will.
All the trials and hurts and disappointments
I’ve endured in my life
will have meaning for me
When I have the time
I’ll sit and reminisce about
all the people…..events….and special moments
that have meant so much to me over the years
and I’ll smile…..and cry……and long
to relive each special moment
one more time.
And I hope the people I care about
will read all the notes and thoughts
that I’ve left behind for them
and realize that each word
was written with love
and with the hope that I might live
in their hearts always.
And perhaps they will
take time to read each note
