My Time …
by Danielle DeAnn Dahm
When my time is drawing near,
Will I be happy with my life?
Have I been a nurturing mother?
Have I been a supporting wife?
Will our children know I
That each one is dear to me?
Will you know that you’re my soul mate,
That our love was meant to be?
Have I followed the Golden Rule,
A good neighbor and friend to all?
Have I followed God’s plan for me?
Have I answered His call?
I want to see the flowers bloom
And see our children grow.
I want to see you when you’re old and gray
All this, before I go …
Spring is here and so am I;
Today’s a brand new day.
With Hope I know that I can Cope.
I’ve so much left to say…
