Leave Something Behind

Leave them something behind
Before it comes your time to go

Paragraphs of memories shared on paper
Written for them to cherish forever

They will miss your unique smile and your laugh
Remembering your voice through written words

Remembering you
With what you left them

Leave them something behind
To remind them that they’re loved

Because the immeasurable pain of grief
Will cause them to forget that sometimes

It will keep them from feeling you here
So please, leave them something behind

For the hard days
To make it easier

 I have written poem upon poem
To leave my loved ones something behind

Small, written reminders of me
From my precious time alive

How else would I let my kids know
That we’ve been together eternally

How we have always been one
And will always remain as so

Life is so very wonderful
With many complexities

Things I cannot explain
Their explanation magical

Like my relationship
With those unseen

They whisper to us all
Until one of us listens

To remind us
To write it down

To remind us
To leave something behind
