    dotsHow Shall We Be Remembered?dots

    Conversations long-remembered past their blooming day
    mend a heart that's broken or in muddled disarray.
    Can we know the value of a sentimental note
    saved by one who's touched by simple sentences we wrote?

    In some treasured volumes, language speaks beyond the years
    sharing thoughtful glimpses, tracing others' hopes and fears.
    Tiny snippets of a life of one who's walked before,
    captured in quotations, still can touch our inner core.

    Spoken and remembered, or just written down in verse,
    cordial, warm and wonderful, or sometimes very terse,
    words are taken to the heart where each can leave its mark
    forming everlasting love or hatred, deep and dark.

    Can we add true meaning to each valued written word?
    How we are remembered may depend on why we're heard.
    Pure communication that can scar or make one whole,
    words are but conduit for reflections of the soul.

      I bow in true awe to the content of your words Sharon. Afterall, isn't this what we are all shooting for as we sweat over this line or that. You have captured well these moments caught in the creative lurch.

      This is wonderful and so very true! We should manage our words like responsible shooters manage their bullets; by taking great care before loosing them, knowing that they can never be recalled, and can do either great good or great harm!

    Another bright gem from your bountiful pen! Well done, gal!
