One of the best poems  ever  written.

Yu/stan/kema

Should You Go First

Should you go first and I remain

To walk this road alone,

I’ll live in memory’s garden, friend,

With happy days we’ve known.

In spring I’ll watch for roses red

When fades the lilac blue.

In early Fall when brown leaves call

I’ll catch a glimpse of you.

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,

One thing I’d have you do;

Walk slowly down that long, lone path,

For soon I’ll follow you. 

I’ll want to know the steps you take

That I might walk the same.

For someday, down that lonely road,

You’ll hear me call your name.

Albert Rowswell
