Elders

After we all decay, we carry on
Not in a time or place, but our legacy
The choices we make and actions we take
Can ripple to tidal waves
When it’s your time to leave
Know that you’ll resonate in
Me for a lifetime
Your reverberance will shake the very
Ground where I walk and they’ll see
You live through me
Only your memory will remain
As we all run our race
We carry your stain
The choices we make and actions we take
Like ripples can dissipate
When its your time to leave
Know that you’ll resonate in
Me for a lifetime
Your reverberance will shake the very
Ground where I walk and they’ll see
You live through me
You’ll live through me for a lifetime
Your reverberance will shake the very
Ground where I walk and they’ll see
You live through me
You live through me
You live through me
