"There is a destiny that makes men brothers: 

None goes his way alone;
All that we send into the lives of others: 

Comes back into our own.


~Edwin Markham (1852-1940)



Poems by Mildred J. Douglass (1908-1988)

Should You Go First

Should you go first and I remain

To walk this road alone

I'll live in memory garden dear

With happy days we've known.

In Spring I'll wait for roses red,

When purple lilacs fade

In early Fall when brown 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

Though blindly I will grope

The memory of your helping hand

Will buoy me with hope.


Should you go first and I remain

To finish with this scroll

No lengthening shadows shall creep in

To make my life seem droll.

We have had so much happiness

We have had our cup of joy.

Our memories are a gift from God

That death cannot destroy.


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 some day down that lonely road

You'll hear me call your name.
