Remembering Those Lost – Poem and Photos

Remember Me

 

Remember me_

 

not as a date or time,

 

but as a person.

 

Remember me_

 

I was weak…I was strong.

 

I was afraid…I was brave.

 

Remember me_

 

I had wants…I had desires.

 

I had needs…I had goals.

 

Remember me_

 

not as an event in history,

 

but as an individual.

 

Remember me_

 

I lived… I loved,

 

I laughed…I danced.

 

Remember me_

I'm a novelist, poet, and artist. I love books, nature, art, and gardening. I'm a rock hound and there's a photo of me with a cool fossil rock on my about page, I take a lot of nature pictures. The background here is one of mine. Unfortunately I recently lost my wonderful husband, but I'm grateful to have the blessing of two beautiful sons. elizabethmeltonparsons.wordpress.com is © Elizabeth Melton Parsons 2007-2017.
