My passing will be as a gentle whisper
Whose words are never heard,
Yet combined with many others
Becoming a breeze moving ever on,
Passing by those left behind unnoticed
Thereby able to touch, and be felt again

Joining with other whispers into breezes likewise
Becoming a wind gaining strength
For in the summer, bringing a small respite
And a temporary consolation
To those who endure the heat
And in winter, a freshness in the cool sweetness
Invigorating, injecting all with a desire for life

Every time I am on the verge of being forgotten
I will blow in from the horizon
Bringing a different memory every time
I pass through the body of those that remember
There are no limits to the places I can go
Nor the people I can touch
In this way I will be eternal,
And my passing will not have been in vain

jer, this poem is amazing...it took my breath...i love this...its SO beautiful, full of your poetic grace...
there seems to be no limits on your ability to write the depth of your mind either.
I am taken by the images of ones passing and becoming like the winds...
man i really love this poem...
stalking you in awe,
your jm

 and you can say baby...
baby can I hold you tonight
maybe if told you the right words...
at the right time,
you'd be mine...
baby can I hold you tonight...

This poem has wind swept beauty of words flowing like the gently breezes on a calm summer day.

I love it if you couldn't tell.
