Remember Me, My Love

Remember Me

When the sun rises and the rays stream through the window

Remember me, right next to you

As the birds begin singing their early morning song

Remember me, across from you

Cup of coffee, fresh orange and paper in hand

Remember me, lips kissing you

Door closing gently, in the window I wave good bye

Remember me, watching you go

Tenderly I walk away, beginning my own day

Remember me, close to your heart

When the sun settles and the moon appears with the stars

Remember me, I welcome you

Our day apart ends, alas we are together

Remember me, my hand in yours

Serenity washes over, peace beckons my soul

Remember me, head on your chest

Begin the night, no ill has come, again we are safe

Remember me, unconscious tugs

Tonight sweet dreams begin to play, pulling us apart

Remember me, you dream away

Dark skies splattered in streaks of early light, stars wink off

Remember me, your eyes open

Fingers of light lifting veils of darkness, inch by inch

Remember me, a new day dawns

Soft, tingling caresses, unspoken words of love

Remember me

Magdelene -- Thank you, and I'm glad that you chose this one as your first. I haven't been back to this poem for a long time, and just rereading it stirs my inkling for writing again. Again, thank you. :)

Of all your hubs this is the one I chose to read frist, simply because of the title and I'm very glad I did. Reminds me of Footprints for some reason and I'm not sure why. Very thought provoking, voted up and I think beautifully done.

Well I for one shall not forget your words that pull me in like clean fresh laundry through my window with the smell of fresh Spring air. Wonderful stuff here. I long to hold your hand like that now and feel you flow through my aged hand. "Fingers of light lifting darkness..." wonderful. And I love that stone at the bottom.

Once again, thank you John for coming by and visiting. Yes, I believe we all want to be remembered. So many daily tasks that keep us busy, but at the end of the day, we want love and to love.

Mimi -- Thank you for taking the time to come and reading.

Beautiful.

I think your sentiments express what we all want - to be remembered. And the best way to be remembered is to remember - in all the little things and little ways and surely we will be remembered.
