What will you leave behind
When it’s time for you to pass on?
Will your work as a researcher be lost,
And all your efforts be gone?
Who will pass the torch,
And keep up the family names?
Who will uncover the family links
And who will distribute the blame?
Memories of things old or lost,
May fade or just pass away
All the things both said or done
Will remain for display.
Along the path you’ve dropped
Crumbs of your history.
Will your descendants care what happened here,
Or was it all for your vanity?
