I decided to answer Isis's challenge in Haiku form......


When I'm gone, just know
Even though I tried in vain
I truly did try

If you did try, then it was not in vain.

Actually, Isis, it was quite thought provoking....I was originally planning something longer, but all I could come up with was this.
