Poem: "Remembrance"

Remembrance
By: Eve Estelle

The dead feel no sadness,
The dead feel no pain;
They've at last escaped this madness,
And no longer strive in vain.

Remember those you've lost,
Be thankful for the memories;
Speak of them with kindness,
Forgive them of their treacheries.
Touches are a thing of the past,
As their physical forms are finished and gone;
It's a sad thing that we wish wouldn't last,
But remember that their spirit lives on.

For each star in the sky, think of a smile;
A mind of intellect, happiness divine.
For each twinkling eye, think of a heart;
A burning fire, a golden shine.

Remember those you've lost,
Be thankful for the memories;
Speak of them with truth,
Of times good and bad, old and in youth.
None of us are perfect,
Our choices are our own;
Good and bad, they make us,
Don't filter what is shown.

The sun sets upon these eyes,
But rises for another;
You'll always have the memories,
And you'll always have each other.

  5. Also, and anyone who wants can answer this:

    Do you all see the fancy fonts for the work titles and other words? I noticed they don't show up on the mobile version of this blog, and was curious if I'm the only one that sees them in general...
