Though I have never looked into their eyes
I feel their presence near
We are bound by the strongest ties
And their stories I loved to hear
Their souls have left their earthly form
Their wings beyond the clouds
Their energy lives on inside of me 
And their legacy makes me proud
Some were native to this land
Others fought to make it free
Some came to have a better life
And sailed across the sea
Some lived in a tent when times were rough
Some lived with abundance and wealth
Some died when they were way too young
And others lived  long and in good health
Each deed they did  to change their lives
Lives on as part of me
I tell these stories to a child of mine
who will carry on our legacy
