If I Lose my...

A Poem to my Beloved Bill

If I lose my legs,

I will have yours

To push me.

If I lose my hands,

I will have yours

To comfort me.

If I lose my mouth,

I will have yours

To speak for me.

If I lose my eyes,

I will have yours

To see.

If I lose my mind,

I will have yours

To teach me.

If I lose my heart,

I will have yours

To love me.

If I lose my soul,

I will have yours

To guide me.

If I lose my life,

I will have yours

To remember me.

Thank you so much! You don't know how much it means to me when someone votes up and shares. Those are the highest honors one can receive. For me, writing is not about the money, it's the sharing of a few good words. Thanks again.
