Don't Forget

When the mourners turn away from the grave

Don't want them to be sad of what I could have been

When I make it to the Gates of heaven

Don't turn your head in shame from me God

I only lived selfishly till I knew You

When the wind has torn the leaves from my grave

Don't forget to think of me

When the Spring brings buds back to the trees

And when the Sun is warming your brow

Remember my clear blue eyes and a smile

Being human isn't easy as  we're told

Bills still need paying

Food still needs to be gathered and bought

Dark still need the light

And love is the only guarantee

Can you hear me when the birds sing

Or when the crickets call on a summers eve

Can you see me in the morning when you wake

Can you taste me when you have a cool drink

Do you feel me  when I hold you in the night

Love never dies

We take it with us when we go

It's just harder to remember

    Beautiful work! Love is so much easier to feel and be immersed in when it's happening in the moment... though dimmer with distance and time, it still never dies. I like your style, mate. Thanks for sharing!

    Wow! I'm totally loving it. I like what you've said about love. Sometimes life's issues trample on us so that our love is veiled yet it always remains -we just need to remind ourselves of it. Nice write Patrick. Very nice!
