You Will Remember

Poem By Gerry Legister

You will remember me
As time passes away for a little while,
When shadow and fragrance has gone,
You will remember the last smile,
On the day a gentle kissed you gave
Made my soul cried for just a while,
And when you quietly held my hand,
The ribbons of broken flags wave,
Feelings politely tried to understand.
Goodbye to lives intrinsically enjoined,
In the future God had planned.
When we both will go far way,
Into another day of a distinct land,
Remember me when you pray.
I should like to hear your voice,
Once, if you forget what I look like,
Then whisper my name in the air.
And afterwards remember to rejoice,
With memories as though I am right there,
Do not be sorry when broken and contrite
For you was my special choice.
If memory leaves only the silence,
And if I see you once before I go,
With the heritage of thoughts we had.
It is far better that I should know,
Than you should live and be sad.

Still Waiting

Every sixty seconds spent waiting,
On the reality to obtain promises,
Could be a minute of inheritance gone?
Never to come back and take chances.

In Heaven With You

I’m in heaven with you,
Spirited away on a burning sphere,
Inside of me are the new
Imprints of this adventure.

Pain Shall Have No Power

The pain we hate shall have no lasting power,
And weak it will be when we shall see the sane,
Go without dominion into deaths final hour,
Sink into the ground where they will rise again.

Overcoming Obstacles

Courage sometimes is the quietest voice
That roars loudest from within,
Making faith a distinctive choice
And compelling motivation to try again.

Spring Is Here Again

Spring is here again taking a shower in the trees
Bathing the wind that brings again spring cleaning,
Wash the newly formed lawns and greener leaves,
Of April; wet days soak deeper in sprinkling spring.

My Future

I want to see the changes
that lies beyond these doors,
to the gate of future ages
and see what heaven has in store.
