The Urn - Poem by Rosie McFadden

Like others
When I die I’d like to leave a legacy
So that when I am gone, I remain.
Yet living should be more, than
preparation for dying.
And if I live not my own life
then who should take the blame.
I want to live so that the things that
matter most to me are the things that fill my hours.
So that when I look back and memories are all that remain
I can say that I have loved like yesterday never happened
and like tomorrow may never come and that I’ve allowed
my heart to express the full depths of love placed there
before I knew love existed. I want to live life as
intended by my Creator, being all that I was
designed to be, and feeling all I was
created to feel. I take my heart in
my hands and set it free
from the confines of
fear and reason,
and time
I want to
ever it
me knowing
that it goes no where that God can’t keep me.
