For my children

Some deep rambling stuff

My memories will fade one day

my eyes will shine less bright

and into dark I’ll surely slip

but you’ll remain my light

 

The best of me I hope I gave

My smile, my laugh my frown

from good and bad, your path I shaped

you’res the thing’s I’ve handed down

 

Your hand I help, your head I kissed

scraped knee and fever soothed

beside your bed all night I sat

a heart once hard so moved

 

And seasons pass, I watch and smile

you clamber, fight and strive

too quick to run before you walk

eyes bright and so alive

 

Each year that passes I embrace

such change and watch you grow

my hand let go you walk alone

and deep inside I know

 

Too soon my time will surely pass

alone you’ll be but find

your joy and hope and always feel

the love we leave behind
