After the death of my friends grandmother I was forced to reminisce the passing of my grandfather and was inspired to write this poem.

All We Must Remember is Life

All we must remember is life
The way we talked together
All those beautiful long nights
And yet we think, things could be better
If our hearts live on, in spite
Of all the pain and sorrows we feel in life

All we must remember is life
Of how we talked about the past
And though I know I miss you now,
It's your memory that lasts
And how you laughed, how you laughed
Still echoes through my mind
I know the things you taught me
I'll never leave behind

All we must remember is life
Though life seems to be no more
With shaking hands and watered eyes
I know God will open the door
To his ever-loving arms
And my friends love
Will keep me from harm

  This truly is beautiful James. Very touching, sad but hopeful. Thank you for sharing this with me, your words do comfort me.
I'm sorry that you lost your grandfather but I see you have found strength in writing and expressing your thoughts and feelings so well.
I look forward to reading more of your work.

  The thing I liked abou this piece is that despite all the details "All we must remember is life". That line liked...seriously picked me up from where I've been down in the dumps for the past month....(erm, or the majority of my life.) Regardless, thank you for this piece.


PS: I might have a few more comments in my weary brain yet.

  I don't why sometimes poems that are featured or posted don't get the reads but I appreciate the sentiment and it is important to remember life and to also remember that truly life/soul are eternal.

My condolonces on your loss but keeping him alive in verse and mind is keeping him alive in heart and life

love,peace,joy&smiles to share

  You could be a poet, a lyricist or even write hallmark type cards. I feel you would be capable of all of these things and you should never limit what you do with your gift or how you use. All people are touched in different ways, so it is always good to have many colors and shades in your palette.

  "Hey James, 1st off there are two spelling errors in your description of the poem which when you look I know you will find them immediately.---Second off, I think this is a great piece of work, in fact lyrics that are crying out for a melody. I notice that the picture of you bears an uncanny resemblance to Mr. Johny Cash (one of my favorite people). Has anyone ever mentioned that?---Anyway good one dude--Keep it up---Mugs---
