How far into the future
None of us really know
When looking back to see
What our life might show.
Was it a life we’d be proud of
Some don’t seem to care
But many realize what they leave
Is something they’d be proud to share.
I hope that when the time comes
I can look back on all I’ve done
Able to smile and see evidence
I left a mark in this lifes run.
Each of us deals with the mistakes
That we leave behind in our wake
But others give us the final vote
That we left more than we did take.
