If the march had not been accomplished yet
If children could see you in your trench coat
If bridges can be renamed or rebuilt
If not one of us lives to see our work
If time were nearly as long as it seems
If history could be what outlives us
If it is by the telling of stories
If your name is written on all of us
If you were nearly killed trying to live
If we truly lived by the signs we write
If the struggle goes on day after day
If good trouble is worth getting into
If we find a way to get in the way
If we still can we will remember you
