AFTERGLOW

POETRY BY KATHY BOECHER©

What will remain when we are gone, what memories will stay,

How will the world remember us when we are far away,

The treasures that we leave behind are often just a breath,

A moment in this world of ours leads to eventual death.

 

Yet when we leave a piece of us, an act, a thought, a dream,

Some words of true encouragement, are more than what they seem,

When we can look outside ourselves and touch another soul,

Our lives will be sufficient then to reach our final goal.

 

When opening up our hearts in love,  our motives will be true,

Our tears and laughter will be shared in everything we do,

To live in true humility is not an easy task,

But when we do we will be blessed with afterglow that lasts.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
