I am because you were
I am from the breath of you
walking like my pass, in steps so true
striding to my future in the child of you


Looking in the eyes of my grand
I see my fathers eyes looking back at me
there is a movement of life in all that is me



I flow now in my children, as they flow in theirs
I want to dance with them in a gentle embrace
Let me hold out my hand to them
with the baton of time
reaching back,  then let me pass that on


when the day comes and I release this life
let one child pick up where I have left off
let them see me in the eyes of their grand's
and in the turn of a hand, a tilt of a head
