The Legacy

I grab a book from off the shelf

It’s binding old and worn

A history book of sorts it seems

Some pages rough and torn

The words reflect a mighty soul

Of one most brave and strong

A life of trial of love and hope

That plays out like a song

I grip each page expectantly

Each chapter sets the stage

Of how I’d like my life to be

The wisdom of the age

Her love of God and family

Stood strong the test of time

An act of selfless love it seems

So perfectly sublime

I marvel at the beauty shown

To all who crossed her path

A hug she gave to everyone

Her soul a solace hath

Alas, I turn the final page

But this is not the end

I take with me a legacy

My mom, my love, my friend

May you rest well in the arms of Jesus.
