at home with ann


Posted on: 11 October 2006

How long life, how long will we
Be granted to fulfil our destiny
In the vastness of the universe
Fleeting moments on earth are we
To leave our mark, make good our name
To leave cherished memories of what we became
Given freewill to make a difference
To shine like a star in its brilliance
So much to learn
So little time on our sojourn
Soon celestial angels take our hand
For the world to come, our Promised Land
Praying we leave behind a binding legacy of love
As we cross over to the heavens above

Ann — This poem is incredible. What wonderful words. I am the author of a book entitled ‘A Legacy of Love – Realizing the Gift in Goodbye’ your poem is such an apt description of what I write. I wonder, would you be interested in sharing this poem — either as a resource on my website, or in print? Drop me an email if you are,

have a beautiful day!
