Every Thing On It by Shel Silverstein

Oh my goodness!  A new Shel Silverstein book is out and I had NO idea it was coming!  Many thanks to my mom for gifting me with this precious collection of previously unpublished poems and drawings from one of my all time favorite authors.  I must say it is very bittersweet reading through the poems.  Here is one particularly poignant one for you to enjoy:

WHEN I AM GONE
When I am gone what will you do?
Who will write and draw for you?
Someone smarter–someone new?
Someone better–maybe YOU!
I’m trying not to cry…
