For my infectious smile
For my word tricks and clever remarks.
I want to be remembered for my secret fragility
For the freckles when the sunshine kissed my skin
For my unwavering loyalty.
I want to be remembered for my blushing shyness
For my dramatic disposition
For my motherly kindness.
I want to be remembered for my open heart
For my tear stained shoulders
For my unwillingness to part.
Instead, I am afraid, I will be remembered as a fool
For being too soft most of the time and too sensitive some of the time
For being hard work and bad at pool
Remembered for messy hair and too many trinkets
For doing things just short of perfect
For wiggling in bed and stealing the blankets.
