Front: SOME GAVE ALL
Back: If you are able, |
save for them a place inside of you |
and save one backward glance when you are leaving
| for the places they can no longer go. |
Be not ashamed to say you love them. |
Though you may or may not have always |
thake what they have left |
and what they have taught with their dying |
and keep it with your own.
