Remember me

It's time, you've no more left to spend

Be at peace there's no mistake

Every life must have it's end

 

 

Why worry now the door awaits

Through which we all must walk

So come we tarry not, my patience it does abate

 

 

What's that? Your legacy

Of all you left behind

That's not for me to say, for it's how you lived your life

 

 

Did you covet money, power, or petty shiny things

Where you kind to others

Or did you use them as a means

 

 

Did you cling to family, make friends at every turn

Show up to every function, to cheer for those you loved

Or argue and fight only to end up the one they spurn

 

 

Have you used every second, every minute, every hour

To live the life you were given

To do everything within your power

 

Make no mistake

I am no one's judge

Whether you were good or bad matters not to me

But I shall give you my take

 

 

We all have one shot

One span with which we can climb as high as we want

And in the end when it's time to rest, just ask yourself

Have I given all I'v got

 

 

When it's over one thing remains

This legacy you wish to leave

So I'll ask a favor, before I escort you through the door

Too aleviate your pains

 

I promise friend to remember you

Will you please remember me

Well happy news is that I have found another poet
Sad news is this poem.
A very in depth piece, with an obvious amount of personal feeling behind it.
Leaves quite a few unanswered questions with the implication that it is up to us to find our own answers.

Yes a poem with sad tidings, and I do try to remain vague when I write. I like to leave it to the reader to find their own meaning, just as this means something to me. On another note im a little happier now, getting a compliment from you on my work does bring a smile to my face. ty :)

I too like to leave my poetry open to interpretation. It leaves a certain effect on many people in different ways. The meaning is perceived by all, but in different forms.

A very moving and powerful piece, very similar to a quote I once heard:
"Fear not death but of a life wasted"
Keep up the great work, I love your poems.

I really liked this piece. It had meaning and depth behind it, and I could really relate to parting with friends, with only the memories left behind. I feel that although the moment of parting is sad, the effect is happier because you will always have the memories. Definitely a favorite of mine.

Holds up a faux paw towards my chest and looks around. "What? Little old me made you have the sniffles, that is wonderful<3"
