About the Poem
I wrote this poem for my best friend when I was told I was going to die of Leukemia. I was worried about how she would live without me and that I was leaving her alone. I wrote this poem to tell her that I will always love her and to hold on to that to get her through the terrible times ahead. This poem is dedicated to Kim, who I will always love more than anything in this world.
A Legacy Of Love
|by Anna Mckenzie|
|As darkness slowly seeps into the air
The September Sun sinks further into the pillows
That are made of mountains
I feel drawn to the night
Which I once so fiercely fought.
Velvety soft wings envelop me
And my heart is full of you.
If tomorrow comes without me
If the darkness should carry me softly away
If I have heard my last dawn chorus,
Seen my last bright sunrise, lived my last sweet day
Wrap my love around you like a blanket
When winter comes, to keep you warm.
And forgive me that I am not with you.
Let my love carry you through the storm.
