  1. Worth

    When my life has reached it's very end,
    And I take that final breath;
    I want to know I've left behind,
    Some "good" before my death.

    I hope that in my final hour,
    In all honesty I can say:
    That somewhere in my lifetime,
    I have brightened someone's day.

    That maybe I have brought a smile
    To someone else's face,
    And made one moment a little sweeter
    While they dwelled here in this place.

    Lord, please be my reminder
    And whisper softly in my ear ...
    To be a "giver," not a "taker,"
    In the years I have left here.

    Give to me the strength I need,
    Open up my mind and my soul
    That I might show sincere compassion,
    And love to others before I go.

    For if not a heart be touched by me,
    And not a smile was left behind ...
    Then the life that I am blessed with,
    Will have been a waste of time.

    With all my heart, I truly hope
    To leave something here on earth ...
    That touched another, made them smile
    And gave to my life..... worth.
