Dear Parents…
By Christy Kennealy 
I did not die young.
I lived my span of life,
Within your body
And within your love.

There are many
Who have lived long lives
And who have not been loved as me.

If you would honor me
Then speak my name
And number me among your family.

If you would honor me
Then strive to live in love
For in that love, I live.

Never, ever doubt
That we will meet again.

Until that happy day,
I will grow with God
And wait for you.
