What Would I Say?

Yes it is true that I never got to see
All that this world holds
The flowers, trees, grass or
A bright sunny day
Not even the smiling faces
of my loving family
But in my heart I have seen
all of these things,
even in my short time

It is also true that I never got to feel
the many things that you take for granted
The snow on my face on a cold December day
Finger paints and crayons
I will never hold in my hands
But I did feel the loving arms
on my mother and father
cradling me gently.

I never got to hear all the sounds
that make most hearts sing
The laughter of a loved one or
the sweet song of a bird
Songs on the radio and the words
"I love you" are to me a mystery
But the soft touch of my mother's hands
shouts to me all of this and more.

I would never have known the joy of
running through a field of flowers
Never would I roll down the side of
a hill too dizzy to stand
Hide and seek, tag and dodge ball
I would have missed
In my mind I will do all of these
things and more.

You all may see it as me missing out
on all of these things
by leaving you so soon
But where I am going I will do, see, and hear,
everything you do and more
All of the people that have passed
before me are waiting
to make that come true
I will always think of good things,
for in my short time that is all I know.

So don't cry for me
I am doing all that you have
all wished for me,
and from my time here with you
I will know nothing but love
and that I will take with me.
