Remember Me When I Was Here

Remember me when I walked on this Earth

I  will remember the stars in your smile and the moon who circled your laughter

Remember me when I was here, loving you so much that we both knew we had something special

I will remember the notes I heard in your words every time you picked up the phone and heard my voice

Remember all the fun we had, the crazy things we did, said and thought

I will remember we could do no wrong-even the trees would bow to see us together

Remember how we both struggled to be “left-handed,” with all of our right brains so fully engaged

I will remember on the left side of time I will always find the right side of your soul

Remember how summer began with “Let it be so,” and so it began, and how we loved it

I will remember how a simple day of water and sun could last as long as your words in my heart

Remember my opinionated kindness with a side portion of  “festering wound”

I  will remember how time changed you into a work of art on a canvas made of pure spirit

Remember that angels do exist and they came in the form of two little boys

I will remember the sun rose with your heart that day and chased the dark away forever

Remember that I am always with you and only a flick away

I will remember your words in my heart are written with the ink of love

Remember me when I walked, danced, ran, clucked and loved upon this Earth

I will remember how you always changed God into a verb and never kept this secret to yourself

    Thank you Megan. I am so glad you are getting something out of these words. Here, the real credit goes to my mom, who wrote the bones of this poem.

    Mrs. Mosel: Scott just showed me this website. The poem is very moving, well-versed and unbelieveably expressed. My favorite line was “I will remember the words in my heart are written with the ink of love.” You have the skills of a composer who has not lost track of your heart.
