Should you go first - author unknown

There have been such a lot of our treasured friends who have left us for the Bridge, this poem is for all those left behind. Author is unknown.


Should you go first and I remain
To walk the road alone
I値l live in memories garden
With happy days we致e known.

In Spring I値l wait for rose痴 red,
When faded the Lilacs blue;
In early Fall, when brown leaves fall,
I値l catch a glimpse of you.

Should you go first and I remain
For battles to be fought
Each thing you致e touched along the way
Will be a hallowed spot

I値l hear your bark; I値l see your smile,
Though blindly I may grope
The memory of your helping paws
Will buoy me on with hope

Should you go first and I remain
One thing I値l have to do
Walk slowly down that long, long path
For soon I値l follow you

I want to know each step you take
So I may take the same
For someday down that lonely road
You値l hear me call your name
