This poem appeared in the Legacy Newsletter for Daughters of Utah Pioneers, Spring 2007.
Could I leave home and Mother
And sail to a distant shore?
Could I, after losing loved ones,
Say I was more blessed than before?
Could I give up all I had worked for
To help others on their way?
Do I appreciate the comforts
That are mine to enjoy today?
Grandma, you could do these things
And do them gladly too
Because your faith in God was strong
And to that faith were true.
If I'm worthy then to meet you
I'll be glad to take your hand
And give my heart-felt love to you
Within that better land.
