    Where are you when you’re everywhere?
    When time speeds by leaving you bobbing
    in its wake like an old corked wine bottle,
    where are you then when your time is done?
    Of course, it will be unknown to you,
    but you will regret your passing anyway,
    simply because you won’t be there
    to put on a show and say I’ll be missed.

    while we're conscious, we get to imagine what we'll miss...and write about it...from an "out-of-body" point of view...but I'm certain once we're gone...we won't know a thing....and those we've loved and left behind will feel the agony of our passing; unable to fill our void...

    but our words will indeed, go on.

    "write the words, poet"... let's leave the world something worth remembering...

    love it

    Not Often

    Not often do we think about when we are gone and what will and happen what we won't have a chance to say--but it all winds down--inevitably--that's what we must remember a we live from day to day--we only get once chance at this--Ra
