      Remember Me

To the living, I am gone. To the sorrowful, I will never return. To the angry, I was cheated but, to the happy, I am at peace and to the faithful, I have never left. I cannot speak, but I can listen. I cannot be seen, but I can be heard. So as you stand upon the shore gazing at a beautiful sea, remember me. Remember me in your hearts, in your thoughts, and the memories of the times we loved. The times we cried, the battle I fought and the times we laughed. For if you always think of me, I will have never gone.
