His Legacy

by Faye Diane Kilday

This is a true poem about a very special boy whose short life brought so much love and beauty to the world. It is dedicated to all the special children who bless our lives for only a short time but whose priceless gifts last forever.

At an early age he started to

create beauty.

The kind of beauty that could

reach in and touch your heart.

The kind of beauty that could

open your eyes; and bring a

tear to them at the same time.

He had vision; he could see the

future; even his own, I think.

And that's why, at an early age,

he started to create beauty.

His was to be a passionate life,

a creative life,

a meaningful life...

And a short life.

At an early age he started to

create beauty.

And that beauty is his legacy to

the world.
