It Feels A Shame To Be Alive

Poem By Emily Dickinson

Remember Me:
To the living, I am gone.
To the sorrowful, I will never return.
To the angry, I was cheated,
But to the happy, I am at peace,
And to the faithful, I have never left.
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you stand upon a shore, gazing at a beautiful sea - remember me.
As you look in awe at a mighty forest and its grand majesty - remember me.
As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity - remember me.
Remember me in your heart, your thoughts, your memories of the times we loved,
the times we cried, the times we fought, the times we laughed.
For if you always think of me, I will never be gone.

Comments about It Feels A Shame To Be Alive

there is one important line missing from her poem. " I cannot speak, but I can Listen." which is followed by: I cannot be seen but I can be heard.
So beautful
It's wonderful I like so much
Heard this recently at a funeral - beautiful
This is the most HORRIBLE voice. There are too many bad digital voices but this was the worst. Way to ruin this.
