Remember Me

To the living, I am gone.
To the sorrowful, I will never return.
To the angry, I was cheated but, to the happy,
I am at peace and to the faithful, I have never left.

I cannot speak, but I can listen.
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you stand upon the shore gazing at a beautiful sea,
remember me.

As you look in awe at a mighty forest and it’s grand majesty,
remember me.
Remember me in your hearts, in your thoughts,
and the memories of the times we loved.
The times we cried, the battle I fought and the times we laughted.
For if you always think of me,
I will have never gone.
