What I Leave Behind - Poem by Mary Ryan

No one ahead to carry on my name
But I leave a legacy just the same
The gift God gave I choose to share
And opportunities come from everywhere
It's the words I write down each day
My legacy in my own special way
Poems of witness and gifts of love
Each one inspired by God above
Should He ever take my gift away
I know my words are here to stay
A word now written you can never erase
Somewhere there will exist some faint trace
When my life someday shall end
Poems I've left to each one my friend
And now I'll stand before Him and He'll say
'So many you've blessed in your own special way'
