if you do not see me before I go

if you do not see me before I go

here is what I hope you know

first, it’s okay – it’s really okay

whatever you didn’t get to say

second, the bulk of my life was very good

even if it didn’t end how you felt it should

do not allow an ending to eclipse the rest

I love you all and I’ve done my best

I’m sorry for any mistakes or pain

and don’t worry; everything circles back again
