Will I be remembered?
This plaguing question,
will I be remembered
when I am gone?

Have I done anything,
helped anyone, am I
worthy to be remembered
after I leave this world?

Dreams are out of grasp,
Hopes are dimming
All I wish to have done
Something worthwhile.

Is my life in vain,
These questions
nagging at me day and night
Have I made an Impact?

Just a fading Image,
do people really notice me?
Can they see what is inside
of this humble exterior?


Pain is what I know
has it helped in preventing
Pain in those I care for
or do I cause more?

Bothersome Questions,
Will I ever know the answers?
I pray to know the answer,
Will I be Remembered?


 The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship."

--Ralph Waldo Emerson

Inspiring,your words made me think of my own life and what i`ve done but more importantly what i have yet to do.Its so easy to let life just slip by and the hard path is to make a difference but very much worth the effort. it made me think .

If it is your wish - you will never be forgotten.

In life's overflowing book of treasures...
We all hold a piece of a page...
Yours will surely be read over and over until the end of time

I like the questioning in this~
I think we all wonder about our departure from this life~
We all will ask those questions at some point~

Nicely written~
Marie~

Daniel,
       this is excellent!

You will be remembered, my friend. . . by those who love and care about you. . . not a day will go by that someone somewhere will stop what they're doing for just a moment and ask themselves, "Gee, I wonder what ever happened to Daniel?"
