Should you go first and I remain For battles 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 To finish with the scroll, No length'ning shadows shall creep in To make this life seem droll. WeVe known so much of happiness. We've had our cup of joy, And memory is one gift'of God That death cannot destroy.
