“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.”
– Albert Pike
Leave behind a legacy, friends
Carve your names in stone;
Be remembered for what matters
For what is you and you alone.
For the artist, be remembered
For a canvas filled with swirls;
For the dancers, make your memories
Of pirouettes and twirls.
For the writer, leave the beautiful words
That you were born to say;
For the actor, leave those scenes to last
Far beyond the stage.
Musicians leave your music,
Singers leave your songs;
For when we leave behind these parts of us
We’re never really gone.
In memory of our friend and fellow actor, Michael Yelton.
Your legacy lives on.
“Choosing to be in the theatre was a way to put my roots down somewhere with other people.
It was a way to choose a new family.”
– Juliette Binoche
