Are we landmarks and milestones in the journey of life
Momentary references on each journeyed track
Significant in the moment - as we're guiding the way
Then forgotten? Do they never look back?

Will they remember my markings as they walk other roads?
Be homesick for the places they've passed
Am I little more than waypoint on their journey?
Not their first and not to be their last.

Will they mention my location to others they meet?
As a guide on the journeys they face
Will they remember my markings and describe thoughtfully?
Or will the significance of my presence be displaced?
