Beyond The Sunset Should you go first and I remain, to walk the road alone, I’ll live in memory’s garden, dear, with happy days we’ve known. In spring I’ll wait for roses red, when faded, the lilacs blue. In early fall

when leaves fall, I’ll catch a glimpse of you. Should you go first and I remain, for battles to be fought. Each thing you’ve touched along the way will be a hallowed spot. I’ll hear your voice, I’ll see your smile, tho blindly I may grope. The memory of your helping hand will buoy me on with hope. Should you go first and I remain, one thing I’ll have you do, walk slowly down that long, long path, for soon I’ll follow you. I want to know each step you take, so I may take the same. For someday down that only road, you’ll hear me call your name.
