almost_gone

He has achieved success who has lived well,

Laughed often, loved much;

Who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;

Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;

Who has left the world better than he found it,

Whether by an approved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;

Who has never lacked appreciation for earth's beauty or failed to express it;

Who has looked for the best in others given the best he had;

Whose life was an inspiration, whose memory a benediction.
