Like a legend?  

You can find one in Graphics`Legend`.

For your example, I suspect you'd be better off constructing a separate
legend like ...
 lgnd = {Transpose[{legend_lines, legend_text}],
	heaps of other options

Then you can do something like ...
a_plt = Show[your_stuff, DisplayFunction->Identity];

final_plot = ShowLegend[a_plt, lgnd, DisplayFunction->$DisplayFunction];
