I won’t remember
The mountains you climbed in your youth
The knowledge you gained through study
The money you earned in the good times
The goals you reached along the way
The ideas you aired with conviction
The applause you received from peers
The success you achieved in life.
I will remember
You touched my heart with your kindness
You encouraged me with your praise
You met my eyes with acceptance
You heard the words I could not say
You held me when I was hurting
You stayed during a night of pain
You shared my tears and joys with grace.
