After Death - Poem by Sara Teasdale

Now while my lips are living
Their words must stay unsaid,
And will my soul remember
To speak when I am dead?

Yet if my soul remembered
You would not heed it, dear,
For now you must not listen,
And then you could not hear.

    My heart whispers to you
    Words that I cannot say,
    Wonder if my soul would
    Tell you some fateful day.

    Long after I am dead
    Buried and ground to dust,
    Heavens will this message
    Reach your heart if it must.

    Lovely philosophical thoughts and wishes that could not be expressed at the time of one's death. Loved reading the poem. Thanks. (Report) Reply
