The Gift

My heritage I preserve with great care
For I am its sole trustee and beneficiary
My dad spent but a few years with me
But upon passing, left behind a legacy
Fit for a king…

A bright smile
A sprinkle of cheer
A sense of independence
A bit of courage n stiff upper lip
A never say die attitude
An insatiable curiosity n adventure
A lack of diffidence n shyness
A spirit to carry-on happen what may
An implicit faith in god and myself
A sense of fearlessness n bravado
A strong family feeling
A sense of humility
A feeling of kindness for the underdog
A strong sense of right from wrong
A clear as crystal conscience

All these are my priceless heredity
Imparted with love and imbued happily

Thus my legacy will never deplete
But multiply and grow with me!
