HOW TO HONOR THE MEMORIES OF YOUR FATHER Hang their moving frames on the walls of your life Let them remind you of his grace Sit before their grandeur, legs crossed on a mat Learn from their pool of knowledge Hold them on a pedestal, let them wave like a flag That’s your identity, uphold the legacy When they come to you like a whistling breeze Listen; eyes closed, mouth shut, ears wide open Memorize them by heart Teach their alphabets to your children Let them know the memories that made you

And when you remember that their maker No longer smiles at the sun Smile at the sun for him For the good days lived still illuminate the future
