Erik Quinn: The Heart of a Family: Special

Special


There is a special place in life,
that needs my humble skill,
A certain job I'm meant to do,
which no one else can fulfill.

The time will be demanding,
the pay is not too good,
and I wouldn't change it
for a moment, even if I could.

There is a special place in life.
A goal I must attain,
a dream that I must follow.
Because I won't be back again.
There is a mark that I must leave.
However small it seems to be.
A legacy of love for those
who follow after me.

There is a special place in life,
that only I may share.
A little path that bears my name,
awaiting me somewhere.

There is a hand that I must hold,
a word that I must say,
a smile that I must give,
for there are tears to blow away.

There is a special place in life
that I was meant to fill.
A sunny spot where flowers grow,
upon a windy hill.

There's always a tomorrow and the
best is yet to be, for somewhere
in this world, I know there
is a place for me.

I love this poem. I found it the week we received Michaela's diagnosis, it still makes tear up. I have it framed in Michaela's room.
