By Louise Eagle


I promise to live my life with passion

each and every day

And treat those with compassion

that I meet along the way

I’ll soar to heights I never thought

that I would ever reach

And every day, in every way

I’ll practice what I preach

I’ll work as hard as I can stand

but I’ll take some time for me

I’ll smell each rose and watch each sunset

each sunrise that I see

I’ll feel the rain, I’ll face the sun

I’ll open up my heart

I’ll finish every project and each program

that I start

And when the day is over

and twilight comes to stay

I’ll have lived my life with passion

every step of the way!
