Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself.

Think of me when you hear,
A piano's soft lullaby.
Or when you catch a glimpse of Heaven,
Peeking through the sky.

Think of me when you hear,
The strumming of a guitar,
Or when you see in the midnight sky,
The brightest shining star.

Listen for my laughter,
In the pouring of the rain.
Let my smile warm your heart,
When its so full of pain.

When you see a stained-glass window,
& your wrapped in it's light,
I hope you feel my presence,
Even though I'm not in sight.

I pray that you smile,
Everytime I cross your mind.
I pray that my memories,
Are never hard to find.

I'm in your heart forever,
So in you, I live.
Please, remember me always.
Try not to forget.

The author's comments:
In the past two years, I have had two of my dear friends die. After being sick and in a near fatal car accident, I decided to write a poem in their honor, and to be read at any time of loss or death. Though someone dear will never be replaced, I hope this poem brings as much comfort to others, as it does to me.

“I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day; I'd rather one should walk with me than merely tell the way: The eye's a better pupil and more willing than the ear, fine counsel is confusing, but example's always clear.” -Edgar Guest

Great Job, I love this! Five stars, absolutly.
