Dying wish – © 1970

A very short poem about assessing the worth of one’s life.

One of many “4 line poems” (actually 2 lines without the formatting. lol) My attempts to convey as much as possible with few words.

It’s a round about way of hoping that I live a life that is worthy of someone wanting to name their child after me.

When I pass into eternity
My dying wish shall be
That someone in maternity
Will name their child for me
