Here’s What I’ve Done

And when I die
And when I’m dead, dead and gone,
There’ll be one child born
And a world to carry on, to carry on.

— Laura Nyro, “And When I Die”

It may seem like a small thing, but it’s the best thing I could do. I’ve raised — we’ve raised — and continue to raise, a boy who, at the age of 15, has exceeded me as a person in every way I can think of. He’s even taller than I am.

So when I’m gone, he’ll take over my spot, and the world will be a better place . . .
