Should You Go First

Should you go first and I remain
To walk the road alone,
Iíll live in memoryís garden, dear,
With happy days weíve known.

In Spring Iíll wait for roses red
When fades the lilac blue,
In early Fall, when brown leaves call
Iíll catch a glimpse of you

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

Iíll hear your voice, Iíll 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
To finish with the scroll,
No lengthíning shadows shall creep in
To make this life seem droll,

Weíve known so much happiness,
Weíve had our cup of joy,
And memory is one gift of God
That death cannot destroy.

Should you go first and I remain,
One thing Iíd have to do:
Walk slowly down that long, lone path,
For soon Iíll follow you

IĒll want to know each step you take
That I may walk the same,
For some day down that lonely road
Youíll hear me call your name.
