Inheritance

You didn’t leave me much money at all,

but that never really worried me.

As you left me so many precious gifts,

but not all of these can you see.

I took from you understanding of life,

it’s still teaching me every day

Like knowing that after the sun sets,

it’s out of sight not gone away.

You left me with gentle kindness,

such a natural gift to leave

To know that kindness costs nothing,

it’s things we do that please

And I’m wearing you coat of empathy,

as you modelled it so well

I’m following closely in your footsteps,

touched as I was by your spell.

You left me many beautiful memories,

still bringing a smile to my face

Though I still think of you so often,

in my heart you’ve a special place.

One of the things that you taught me,

and it will always stay with me

If you save you’re money until your dead,

it’s the lowest form of charity.

So I wouldn’t really want an inheritance,

as I totally agree with you.

I believe in giving while I’m living, 

knowing you thought that too.
