Song for Mom and Dad

Song for Mom and dad

Dear mother and dear father both long gone You each live a bit in me and my spawn. I have passed along the love you gave me. And those I love will, in turn, love us three. Dear mother dear father and yours truly. But to pass such love a man needs a wife And wives require husbands to add new life. So our tight circle of mom, dad and son Widens to all who've lived under the sun And to all the unborn, their songs unsung. Dear mother and dear father hear my song Across gulfs of time and mortality As I hope my own spawn will sing to me When all too soon I'll be like you–long gone.
