Inspired--By Phyllis Babcock--Canada


I want you to see my smile
On the mark you left behind
~~that lasting impression~~

I think of you in high regard
With fond memories
~~your sweet expression~~

You did touch my life
You did leave your sign
~~that warm inscription~~

A piece of you will be
embedded forever
~~in clear description~~

A inspiration in my heart.
