Let it be said

Helen Keller lost her ability to speak, hear and see after catching scarlet
fever as a young child. In one of the most moving passages in her
autobiography, she writes about how grateful she was for being able to touch a
tree and still remember how it looked like…

Her story inspired me to write this poem…

When the stars give out…
And the moon says goodnight,
for one last time,
and the curtains close,
and no more days are left behind,
then let it be said…
then let it be said that you were grateful,
for this life…
for this miracle,
for this unlikely journey.
for every ray of sunshine,
for every planted seed,
for every shoulder cried on,
for every smile received.
