Pass The Baton


It seems so long now,
But just like yesterday,
You were still here,
And at just a phones reach.
***
Now , years later,
You are years away,
Yet your life is in me,
And passes in seconds.
***
You once brought me up,
Made me more like me,
And now you’ve passed,
And passed the baton on to me.
***
I now live in your memory,
Remember the good times,
Think of your flaws,
And I would take them for a few more times.
***
But here I sit,
Taking over from you,
Learning to live,
And not to forget to laugh.
***
You may no longer be,
In reach of me,
But you live within my heart,
As just another part.
