M.E.M.

Remember Me

What will people remember about me if I die?

One day death will come for me.

What will you recall when I say my final goodbye?

 

I wish what I was telling you was a lie,

but I won’t be set free.

What will people remember about me if I die?

 

Does my name make you raise your head high,

and wail to the sky like a banshee?

What will you recall when I say my final goodbye?

 

The smile I gave you when I was shy,

filled you with so much glee.

What will people remember about me if I die?

 

The fierceness of my heart that made you sigh,

my love for you is a guarantee.

What will you recall when I say my final goodbye?

 

I want you to stay strong after I am gone, don’t cry.

For from our love you never did flee.

What will people remember about me if I die?

What will you recall, when I say my final goodbye?

    A fine write, and one we can all relate to, I'm sure. We would all like to think we will be remembered with affection by those closest to us, when we die.

    ANGELA HERE ~ Good Evening M E M thanks for sharing A very moving Poem in the Classical Vilanelle Style. The Subject *Aprehension about the Memory of One when we die* suits the genre and the pathos is reinforced by the repetition & rhyme ! Thanks for sharing ~ please check our site.
