WHAT REMAINS

by thereluctantpoet

Charles R. Lindholm

WHAT REMAINS OF ME
WOULD THE WORLD WANT TO SEE
AFTER I’M GONE
WHAT MAKES ME
WANT TO LEAVE A MARK
THAT MATTERS
SOMEWHERE, SOMEHOW TO SOMEONE

SOMETHING!
THAT TOUCHES A HEART
OR WHISPERS TO A SOUL
FROM LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY,
THAT BRINGS A TEAR
OR A SMILE

SOMETHING!
THAT REMAINS OF ME
SOMETHING
THAT YOU CAN SEE
AND FEEL, SOMETHING REAL

SOMETHING!
THAT BRINGS UNDERSTANDING
OR INSIGHT
OR A NEW POINT OF VIEW

AN APPRECIATION
ADMIRATION
OR A GENTLE FEELING
OF PEACE AND JOY

THAT LEAVES A MARK ON YOUR SOUL
FROM A MARK IN THE WORLD
FROM WHAT REMAINS
AS A REMEMBRANCE
OF ME
