upon your father’s passing

everything that we possess
in time, we know, will pass away
our gifts, our skills, our very lives
seem meant to serve a certain day

but that to which we give the world
survives us ever still
in thoughts, in hopes, in wistful dreams
some left for others to fulfill

a man is left no more, no less
then what he leaves behind
a legacy to that he loved
enough to leave mankind

how fortunate is one who lives
to see so many dreams come true
and know his legacy’s secured
through what he gave to us in you
