To the Fallen (The Climbers Might Get it)

Because you wore your mother’s harness

And other sundry things

Because of this I know there’s life

And laughter that it brings.


Because you always went on up

Even when it wasn’t smart

I know that cams can rip from flares

And I know that when I start.


Because an undercling is not so bad

But transitions often are to hope

And sometimes when you fall so swift

At least there ain’t one on your rope.
