Dearest Harry, my only son My life is over, yours just begun. Dad and I wish you only the best And leave for you these requests. May you never give up, whatever the fight May you never stray from the path that's right. Our love for you will help guide your way And help each dark night dawn into day. Whenever you feel lost, alone or scared Look to your heart and we'll be there. We, together, our lives now gladly give In hopes, in our passing, that you will live. Dad in your Patronus you will see, In your heart there are reflections of me. We'll look down on you from Heaven above, I'll protect you with the gift of my love. Remember, dear Harry, through all of your life Wars are not always won with fighting and strife Instead of your wand, reach out with your heart For that is where healing always will start.
