Will they know my legacy,
When my last breath breathed?
What will be left,
What legacy will I leave?
Each day that goes by,
Planting seed for those who proceed.
Will know of my love,
Will they build upon what I have given?
A father's desire for children to surpass,
To get a head start, not build from scratch.
Sown in love, truth, and courage,
Vulnerable, real, raw, and free.
A father who pressed in courageously,
Going places previous generations couldn't.
Being an example of love and courage,
Imparting love, courage, truthfulness and boldenss.
Building upon those gone before,
Launch pad for children to go on.
Graceful and loving,
Loved while living.
