Echoes Linger On

 Silent echoes linger on
 When the poet's ink no longer flows
 Sometimes the muse is gone
  But will return to meet the dawn

 Do poets ever truly leave?
  Their poems are left behind to inspire those
 Who may find words to weave
 And write of the dew upon the rose

 Poets muses take them far
 And let them play among the stars
 Poets are really never gone
  Though silent echoes may linger on

"Poems are left behind to inspire" You are exactly right. (Our) Words will always find a way to touch a heart, even when we are no longer here. This is beautiful and tender, all at the same time. ~ Brandy
