I Always Wonder


I always wonder

if you remember me.

I hear of you

from time to time

words of others

who care to wonder

if I will stop and ask

of how you are.

I saw you a time or two

made sure to walk

the other way

get lost within

the crowded street.

Someone asked

if I heard the news

about what had happened

I dismissed it lightly

and went on my way.

Another told me

of this or that

but what did I have

to say about it

not much

everything was so long ago.

Sometimes I think

of if you know

anything of what

is in my world.

I forever ignore

all talk and questions

dismiss nothings

as I solider on.

Proud nature

prevents thinking of

knowing if

you've heard the latest.

Yet, I always wonder

if you remember me.

I suspect we all have someone in our past that we think of that way. You captured it perfectly. Well done!

Very interesting poetry here, pondering about whether one is remembered. I am always very surprised when I find out that someone from way back when even remembers me, for I was such a very shy person when I was so young and never thought that anyone remembered a thing about me, but to my surprise they do. And I am always surprised by such.

Up and sharing

I think most of us can relate. I have a lot of people I think of now and then, wonder how their lives have gone. But don't even know if they remember me. Good poem voted up.

truthfornow That is lovely - it makes one feel nostalgic - I hope that there are some who remember me for I certainly remember many of them.

There are few people that I wonder about: where are they, what they are doing with their life, etc., and it would be nice to know the answer. Very nicely put in this poem.

I often wonder if people remember me, but it seems like I remember them more. Maybe it's because I am a poet? Voted awesome.

Most of us tend to leave a mark on those that care about us. If we disappear for a while, an empty space is left there in its place.

Every now and then a face from the past pops into my mind and I wonder why we lost touch and if they remember me. I guess we all have our different paths to follow, but now and then the roads converge and we cross each other's path once more.

Loved this!

Love this poem. I can completely relate. There are a few people that were once in my life that, although for good reasons I am not incontact with them anymore, I still wonder about them from time to time. Voted up!
