' L E G A C Y'

 
MY DAYS ON EARTH ARE NUMBERED
SO, DEAR GOD, WITH EACH NEW
DAWN,
LET ME GATHER TREASURES
TO LEAVE WHEN I'VE "GONE ON."
 
 
HELP ME FILL A STOREHOUSE
WITH VALUABLES LIKE THESE---
GOLDEN CHAINS OF FRIENDSHIP,
AND CRYSTAL MEMORIES. . .
 
 
GIVE ME PEARLS OF WISDOM,
A SILVER GOBLET OF
THE SWEETEST NECTAR---
THE NECTAR OF TRUE LOVE. . .
 
 
FILL MY COFFEE, TOO, WITH
SMILES THAT SPARKLE LIKE THE
SUN (I'LL PURCHASE THEM WITH
KINDNESS AND THOUGHTFUL DEEDS
I'VE DONE).
 
 
 
WHEN MY NUMBERED DAYS ARE
FINISHED
AND, DEAR GOD, YOU BECKON ME,
LET ME LEAVE BEHIND THESE
TREASURES---
THIS LIVING 'LEGACY' !
 
 
     
       . . .For The Lord Preserveth The
       Faithful, And Plentifully
       Rewardeth The Proud Doer.
                            Psalms   31:23
