    dotsWhat We Leavedots

    Thoughts on death:
    when we die,
    we leave it
    all behind.

    and the most
    thing to leave
    is our love.

    Through it...
    we remain
    in both worlds.

      What makes a loved one immortal is the memory we keep of them as time passes; a good life stands as a memorial that far outlives all our other accomplishments. What else is there to say? This reminds me of the post on softness and the particular tenderness and reverence with which loved ones treat their dead (even the body that no longer houses their essence). A very beautiful meditation on loss. Take care. Bill.

      None of us ever really leaves and yes! I so that we do live beyond our mortal span, love is the key.

    Memories of those I love who are gone come just when I need them.

    Even a bit of who I am regarding purpose resonates in this poem because I'd like to lay down a body of work for others to enjoy after I leave the planet.

    Your friend who inspired this must have been beautiful. And the other aspect is, death destroys all the useless rhetoric
    and we find what is real and important.

    Love and light,

      wow, that was one hell of an edit! Yes, a much more conclusive piece, really top notch and scales above the first draft. Thanks for letting me know about the edit, I really enjoy this!

      I love how your poem makes readers suddenly believe in the power of love (thats what happened to me, anyway) Splendid poem! It's so short but tells all it needs to. I totally agree that great love [for others, and showing it] is the way to live on forever, in the hearts of every life we have had changed in some special way. Nice work! Looking forward to more.

      Yes, We are eternal right now- aren't we- At least I like to think so- nothing is ever lost- if we have loved- or been loved- This one was so short and summed up the feelings I have been having latley myself. Nothing ever dies- Thank you for sharing- this was wonderfully written- Heather

      Short and simple, yet profound at the same time. I like the way you wrote this. It gave the reader a chance to think in between spaces. I think you did a fine job with showing we all leave a piece of ourselves behind...mainly with our love. Great job.

      Seems to be a refelction on words as a carrier of love? If not, I'm still on board.

    Nice, simple, clear and direct, great for the form usage you've prescribed here.

    That second stanza break is a bit off in my opinion. You talk about love through out, but your last stanza refers specifically to the love mentioned in the second stanza. Hmmm, gonna have to think about that one for a bit.

      short and to the point, this. i love the message,
    that we become immortal through the love
    we leave behind.
    i am sorry for the passing of your friend, but
    your insight is a salve i am sure.

    this made me think of two dear friends who recently passed away. Babs died six months ago, and her beloved Dave died a few days ago. as i was sitting in church the other day,
    i looked behind me to where they used to sit at
    daily mass.. there was a beautiful ray of sunshine on the pew, and i could see the two of
    them sitting there as if they were flesh and
    blood. it warmed my heart.

    spread the love,
