I Always Wonder

Updated on November 17, 2013

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.

      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!

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Beautiful poetry! I often wonder if certain people I met in the past still remember me.

      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.

      I think we all have someone we hope remembers us.

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