How will you remember me?

When I have taken my flight

Free of this one world finally

Sailing aloft with all my might

~

 

Will you measure my weight

By the numbers on the scale

Judge by the sway in my gait

The flip of my long ponytail

~

Please look at me so carefully

See the qualities of my soul

Have I loved and cared freely

Examine each and every goal

~

Did I teach your child perhaps

That they were each so precious

Ensure that they had their naps

Was my demeanor conscientious

~

I am a woman of the sunlight

Though I can also be so dark

Try to keep the truth in sight

Remember me as a tiny spark

~

I am more and I am enough.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
