Remembering You

With the amount of celebrities that have passed away this year, it made me stop and ponder as to what people would remember about me if I passed away. This poem is a gentle reminder that our behaviour, words and actions will be our legacy.

If something were to happen to you tomorrow, 

What would people remember about you? 
Would they remember the hours you worked? 

Would they remember the material things you own? 

Would they remember how much money you had in the bank? 

Would they remember the number of holidays you took? 

Would they remember the love you showed? 

Would they remember your caring and your sharing? 

Would they remember the help you gave them? 

Would they remember your smile, your laugh? 

What will they remember, 

Your actions today will determine what they will remember.
