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 unhcurl?

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 fellow man?

Do I have true understanding?
Speak with guided tongue?
Have empathy for others,
Never to condemn?

Have I made choices wisely?
Forgive, let past go?
Learned by mistakes, grew stonger?
Let inner spirit glow?

Do I set an 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?
