In My Absence

WHERE LIONS ROAM...

In my absence

How would things be

Would there still

Peace

Harmony

And tranquility

In my absence

If I watched from above

Will those closest to me

Still feel my love

My presence

My protection and such

In my absence

Would my family still flourish

From the love

Laughs

And precious moments we shared

In my absence

Who will rise

Exhibiting the legacy

That was left behind

With courage

Strength

Love

Honor

And compassion

A reflection of me

With every action

In my absence

What will people say

Did I touch their life

In a special way

Was I a positive influence

A deciding factor

A blueprint

If you will

A teacher

Husband

Father

And all the many hats I wore

In my absence

I pray that it was plain to see

The many mistakes I’ve made

I was just trying to be me
