The Future and the Legacy

For Cooper

You came into this world to make two, three;

Your breaths, your cries, such music to our ears.

The future is unfolding beautifully.

And then they gently handed you to me -

I saw your face, my face through all these years -

Your legacy is limitless and free.

The smile you gave encouraged family

To contemplate your place among the spheres;

The future is unfolding beautifully.

We live a life that’s full of mystery,

Your presence in this very world appears-

Your legacy is limitless and free.

To catch the stars you only have to see

The possibilities that meet frontiers;

The future is unfolding beautifully.

This baby boy, my grandson, may it be

This frantic world should never bring you tears.

Your legacy is limitless and free -

The future is unfolding beautifully.
