In Memory

Should you go first and I remainTo walk the road alone,Ill live in memorys garden, dearWith happy days weve knownIn spring Ill wait for roses red,When fades the lilac blueIn early fall when brown leaves call,Ill catch a glimpse of you.Should you go first and I remainFor battles to be fought,Each thing youve touched along the wayWill be a hallowed spot.Ill hear your voice, Ill see your smile,though blindly I may grope.The memory of your helping hand will buoy me with hope.Should you go first and I remain,To finish with the scroll, No lengthening shadows shall creep inTo make this life seem droll.Weve known so much of happiness,Weve had our cup of joy.A memory is one gift of God that Death cannot destroy.Should you go first and I remain,One thing Id like to have you do.Walk slowly down the long, long path, For soon Ill follow you.Ill want to know each step youll takeThat I may walk the same.For some day down the lonely road, youll hear me call your name.In loving memory ofDonald L HarrisDec 14, 1946 - Sep 4, 2012
