Those That Have Gone Before

I thank those that have gone before
Those who sketched the path
Those who in body
Are here no more

Gratefully I stand on your shoulders
I observe your footprints
Absorb your lessons
Feeling an infinite blessing

You lit the fires
Showed the way
Enabled the fulfilment
Of soul desires

Who could fail
To be inspired
Or grateful
With your wind in their sail

Thank you.
