The Journey
(In Loving Memory Poems)

Should you go first and I remain
to walk the road alone ..
I’ll live in memories garden dear
with happy days we’ve known.

In spring I’ll wait for roses red
when faded, the lilacs blue ..
In early fall when brown leaves fall
I’ll catch a glimpse of you.

Should you go first and I remain
for battle to be fought ..
each thing you’ve touched along the way
will be a hallowed spot.

I’ll hear your voice, I’ll see your smile
though blindly I may grope ..
the memory of your helping hand
will buoy me on with hope.

Should you go first and I remain
one thing I’ll have you do ..
Walk slowly down that long, long path
for soon I’ll follow you.

I want to know each step you take
so I may take the same ..
For someday down that lonely road
you’ll hear me call your name.
