The Living Decide Who To Remember

Poem By Ray Hansell

Do you think that you'll forget me?
When I'm dead and gone
I know that time keeps moving
I know that life will go on

Will you have a memory?
Of things we used to do
Will you remember all the times?
When I said, that I love you

Or will I be forgotten?
Like yesterday's news
It's not for the dead to decide
It's the living who will chose

Time keeps moving and it leaves a memory. We need to understand time of death, love, memory and emotion and sorrow. There is choice to remember. You can never be forgotten. An amazing poem is brilliantly penned..5 stars!

A Child's World

Welcome to my world
Some say it's a simple place
Well that may be so
But at least, there's always a smile on my face

A Cheater Caught

You took off with him
Seeking something new
Little did you know
The things that he would do to you

A Contented Mother

It seems for so many years
I've lived my life for someone else
I put my feelings and needs
Away somewhere on a shelf


Sad eyes
Sad heart
Sad days
When apart

One Should Never Feel

A man all alone
No one to hold
Existing in a place
That's lonely and cold

No One Really Knows

I don't look to the future
Because the future is not mine
I live each and every day
One day at a time
