When I leave

Am I too busy chasing a temporary fortune
That my priorities get lost along the road
The seasons bring their moments
They linger for an instant
They never wait for you to pay the debts you owe
When I leave I want to leave a memory filled with love
The kind you don't forget
When I go I want to be known
As one who lived with no regrets
If life is like a flower
Am I doing all that's in my power
To leave a fragrance behind
It's time to count my blessings
Forget about my savings account for a while I want them to say
What a glorious day
She had so much to gain
But she gave it away
And I want them to see something different in me
And that I'm going to be free

Some glad morning when this life is over I'll fly away
To a home on God's celestial shore I'll fly away
When I leave I want to leave a memory...

What a beautiful song! So thought provoking! Love your choice of photos!

I have never heard of this artist... looks like another visit to iTunes... I had to buy "I Am God"... thanks for sharing it!

Emily I love this! Taking a song or poem that has meaning to you and then illustrating it with your own personal pictures. I may have to try it too :)
