I Want To Be Remembered


I want to be remembered
Not for the things I tossed
Not for the friends I lost
Not for the love I didn't
accept
Not for my actions better left
Unsaid

I want to be remembered
Not for the words I regret
Not for the wasted time I spent
Not for the things that made my heart
Ache
Not for the destruction I left in my
Wake

I want to be remembered
For the happy memories I spread
For the right words I said
For the help I lent
For the love I kept

I want to be remembered
As the girl who loved you til the end
As the girl who will always defend
As the girl who never said
Never
As the girl who would stand by you
Forever

I want to be remembered
Happy
And free

Could you do that for me?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
