Birth Eulogy


These are the words

of my unbridled imagination.

I have tried my best

to keep them as untrue as possible,

to push my mind

deep into the dark recesses

and bring back the things I find

for you.

I ask only

that you read

with an open heart,

an open mind

and no expectations.

These words are your words now;

I am done with them.

I have given them to you;

my legacy

is sounding off in your head

right now

as you read this.

My children,

my progeny,

my gift to the world

is you, now.

Let’s try to do something good,

shall we?


HG – 2018
