What do we leave for posterity?
Some stories, stuff made, a few worthy possessions.
We leave a few gems, a few things worth holding onto.
We leave memories, and pictures, and special recipes no one else had.
Mostly we leave the impact of love.
It's love that impacts people's lives, that changes them.
It's love that makes the stories meaningful,
that makes the possessions valuable.
Love compels us to seek out the stories,
to rummage through the pile,
to hold on.
Love is our last testament.
