Patricia Ann Faulk

Not How Did She Die,

But How Did She Live?

Not how did she die, but how did she live?

Not what did she gain, but what did she give?

These are the units to measure the worth

Of a woman as a woman, regardless of birth.

Not what was her church, nor what was her creed?

But had she befriended those really in need?

Was she ever ready with a word of good cheer,

To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?

Not what did the sketch in the newspaper say,

But how many were sorry when she passed away?
