    Thank you so much for the endorsement. I truly loved teaching that age group as well. .there is no end to their loving. It's just so precious. Thanks for the stars! :)

I agree with you moongirl. That's the part that's gonna be remembered. The love we've shared and the way we've made and impact on the people in our path. I like the message conveyed and enjoyed reading this well written poem. Well done!

This was a good read, Moongirlwriter. It reminds me of that old saying about someone's birth year and death year on a tombstone in that it is the dash between the dates that is what's important because that was their life. Good job.

Moongirl: what we do in the middle is our legacy of love.
My Mom recently died. I wrote poems for her on FS. We have
to treasure our sweet memories of loved ones. Nice poem.

Moon Girl,

This is my go-to style too. Great use of your words in your 575 verse. Yes, it is the middle that is the juiciest and loveliest part of our lives. Funny for some, their baby beginning and adult ending are in diapers.

I like your illustration, but would consider raising the font size a few points in the advanced editor mode. My guess is your pre-schoolers and their grandparents would have an easier time 'seeing' your text. LOL

Best of luck in your contest entry.

Mark

    Thanks so much Mark, I'll give the larger font a try. . .again. The last time the "advanced" mode just really gave me grief.

The in between - that is the thing. This is a grand three line offering and I wish you the best of luck in the contest. You have done a lot with just three lines, leaving us with questions to ask ourselves that count.

    Thank you Miss Sherry. . .choices made in a spirit of love, how can we go wrong? Yet, there are those few that even love may not be enough but we do the best we can. :)

A very well-written three-line poem about our lives. We celebrtate our birthday every year but what we do in between until birth to death is what others will remember about us.

Absolutely true! It's that middle part that's the hardest, too and the only part where we have much of a choice. Great job in making every syllable count to show us what's important in life - to Love!
