Emmy Marie Perezgrau

April 10, 1952 ~ July 11, 2021 (age 69)



As I look all around me. 

And see how life has changed. 

All my younger hopes and dreams.

Have all been rearranged.

I used to want to be a hero. 

Fly around just doing good. 

Learning as I got older.

To do the things I should.

I never wanted to be famous.

Or own big fancy cars.

Or set foot on the moon, 

And study all the stars. 

I did not seek out power. 

To tell others what to do. 

But if I could be like anyone,

I'd want to be like you. 

Helping little children.

And some older people too.

If I could go back in time, 

I know just what'd I do. 

I would not look for diamonds.

Or lots of money in a purse. 

I would be the best of heroes. 

I would be a nurse all over again.
