If I Should Leave You

A day will come when
a personal call for me is heard.
A day when the clouds
in the sky stop passing
and the oceans life
becomes still.
A moment when both
our lives will end.
Mine as I walk the pathway
to our fathers mansion;
yours as a friend, a mother,
a daughter has been selected
to move forward from the
life she was granted to a new
life that awaits.

Give me you laughter as I
am lowered in to the earth.
Let me remind you of the person
you've helped me become.
A heart once afraid to love
has found a home that has
nurtured it's strength.
With love I will shine down
on your waking and sleeping
moments, blessing you with
great hope, undying love, and fond
memories.
If I should leave you,
I leave with you the gift you
gave me, life.
