If I should die, leave me here
In books, buried poems, last thoughts
For we all have the commerce to continue
Life, it will do well without us
That’s just the gentleman of Spring
Evolution with a smile
If I should die, live on as before
For I cannot help what I missed
Oh dear, I hardly lived if but for you
The final summer was not so unlike
The seasons that came before
If I should die, I’ve lived on dread
The danger of not living up to the self
The self that conjured up an identity
And some pet works for a while
If I never have children, then do not judge me
Strange that each one’s loving
Comes to nothing in the end
Sweet hours have perished here
And a heart divided by time
With room enough to ask the universe
If she too felt the thrill of the unknown.
I solemnly believe that the Multiverse feels every iota of Love that is felt by each of us and that she thrives in the revival of that memory.
That’s a powerful quote Geetha. Interesting. Or is love (or what we call love) simply a mechanism used by her in her play of creation.
Just a mere thought really. I believe that love is amongst other things creation and that creation is the action of love inventing itself and if we admit that creation is destruction then love is also destruction, whence the impression that love can be used as a tool in some mechanism used to playfully reinvent matter by alternately creating and destroying it, thereby creating and destroying itself
Yes I like how poetry can enter philosophy and even magnify our evolutionary motivations, like love, whose augmentations, forms and variants are endless. Shakti works in mysterious ways.
just..Wow! I love this piece. 🙂
Hey SOC, I’m glad to hear that. I got a Dad in maybe the last few days of his life. Did I mention I hate November?
The feelings are strong and powerful! Hang in there…
Thanks Moon, my Dad died of Lung Cancer recently, perhaps that’s the tone you are noticing…
Ohhh … I am sorry to hear.. 😦 my deep condolences. May you live to remember the best memories you made together.
Yes the final days even were quite special.
Ahhh.. so good to hear. ((U))
