The Responsible Generation

When someone passes on,

I believe their essence remains
through the impressions
they left on those around them,

and that they still exist in the plains
of our thoughts, and dreams,
but most of all, in our memories.

So a person who has passed on,
leaves a little impression
in everyone's life they touched.

It's a lasting impression that easily
carries on for every generation to come,

and each of us will someday leave a similar print
on someones life for someone else to carry on.

So, in their passing, they pass small pieces
of themselves onto everyone else in their lives,

and it's up to us to keep them in our thoughts,
to keep their dreams alive,
and to pass the lasting memories along
to the future generations.
