  Filled with sorrow
Will I die tomorrow
How will people remember me
The goodness will they see?
Or did my hatred shine
Knowing all was not fine
My mind with confusion filled
My heart to you I spilled
When I began to cry
All you did was sigh
But my pain I could not hide
And you could not abide
To the laws of love
From the gods above
Through my anger you did see
What you truly meant to me
Through my life of rage
In life you must turn the page
And my happiness you will know
The seeds in you I did sow
All for the love of earth
Trying to be strong was my curse
And now I am gone
In your life is the dawn
Will your sun glow bright
Will you try to do what is right
Or will you turn away
And never again sway
You must think of tomorrow
For time is one thing you cannot borrow
With all that is good
You cannot say you would
But that you will
And in you this I instill
Hug your brothers and sisters
All you misses and misters
Be good to one another
For my life is but a reflection
Of a life without affection

Thanks! I have about 80 of them. I am putting them into a book that I am publishing. Thought I'd put a few on here(3) and see some feedback first. :)
