Where There's a Will


The old man's eyes,

A sharp blue knife

Looked into mine

And questioned life.

The life I'd lived

The things I'd done

The gifts I'd had

My girls, my son.

What would I leave

My wife, my kids?

Asked knife blue eyes

Through tired old lids.

Not land, or things,

Bricks, or money

But memories

Sweet as honey?

What will you leave?

The eyes turned sad

The memories of

Husband, Dad?

What will you leave

For grandkids too?

Will they smile

Remembering you?

Blue eyes dug deep

The answer found.

I'll leave them Love,

When I'm in the ground.

Most valued things

Are love, affection,

Blue eyes smiled back

From my reflection.
