For the Both of Us- Poem

Remember the songs I’ve sung. The stories I’ve told
Let the lessons I taught you carry you til you’re old.
I taught you what I knew though it still wasn’t much
Hope that I changed your world through my temporary touch.
Remember the nights that I held you, eyes filled with tears
Prayers whispered in your ears will carry you through the years
A love never lost though my presence is not near
I leave you the last of my courage to replace all your fears
I leave the last of my sunshine when the days are rough
And the last of my strength when the going gets tough,
The last of my rest when you’ve worked your fingers to the bone
And the last of my smiles when you have none on your own
Do it for the both of us. Go and Live your life
You’ll tell me all about it when the timing is right
Go laugh. Go cry. Go fly. Go love.
Do more than these; go beyond and above
I taught you what I knew, though it still wasn’t much
But please…keep living. For the both of us.
