Remembering
Remember,
where trails along
craggy rock
entwined and twisted
along water's edge,
 
and sandstone ledges
where swallows nested
in cups of mud
dove and darted
above and below:
 
then fields of color
and cedared breezes
please spirits
with words unspoken
but understood?
Author's Notes:
When you remember me, it means that you have
carried something of who I am with you,
that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are.
It means that you can summon me back to your mind
even though years and countless miles may stand between us.
It means if we meet again you will know me.
It means that even after I die, you can still see my face,
hear my voice and speak to me in your heart.

You will never get the chance to read this...but you was listed on the random premium member so I thought I'd come over and read...

This is a great piece and you will always be remembered by the members here....

"Then remembering will have to do;
our memories alone, will get us through,
think about the days of me and you..."

You gave us all so much to remember. There is no way we could forget. You live in each one of us now, and forever.
Love Always,
Sap

Yes SW I still see your face, hear your voice and I have talked to you alot

today. I know you understand the tears and pain here. You would not have wanted

anyone crying, but SW I know you understand. You shed your tears with me once

and I admired that in you. The sadness is truly felt here....I miss you my SW.

You are forever in my heart just as i promised you that you would be.

Love,

Penny

The quote by Buechner was inspiring and beautiful. The verses by you, were no less.
It is always nice to know that while we may lose the tangible side of something, it stays with us in spirit and mind. Lovely work here.

As always, wise of life, and you always paint

such a lasting imagery. You will always be remembered

for your kindness, your warm heart, your love of

nature and most of all the beauty that you'll leave

behind within your words. You have given so much

of yourself to so many, you have touched many

so deeply including myself.....This is Beautiful.

Hugs,

~Penny~

To leave a trail of yourself behind for others to remember is the greatest journey of life. I'ts a sad day when no-one remembers you. Great imagery.

That has always been my wish........to leave something on this earth and most importantly...to have people automatically smile as they remember.
I think we all need to know we left some trail
