Who am I? Who are you?
To know - will we ever do?
We know the present, and the past; but
The future yet has not been cast!
Who do I know?
Me, you, the seed yet to grow?
Our children's great-grandchildren; who will they be?
Offspring that we shall never see!
But you, they may get to know:
Captured in time, in a photo!
What will it be like: For them I mean?
Their lives, their hopes, and their dreams!
Will you be me, in years to come?
The energy in you, could there be some?
Of me, in you, to carry my life on;
Or does it all end when my life is done?
