Will you or I be remembered after we depart this physical existence...?

Remembered…or not


Do you think you will be remembered?

When passed on you do eventually become,

Maybe you will die of affairs of the heart,

Maybe you will become in some way dismembered…?


Maybe like a toy or motorized vehicle you will just become kaput,

But will you be remembered by anyone other than those around,

I wonder this myself, will anyone remember me, will they know where I am bound…?


Doubt do I that anything said by me will be part of my memory,

If maybe I had invented something special, maybe that of emery,

But no one will recall me in anyway, just by the words that I herein say,

For there is nothing notable about my words, nothing memorable,

Nothing more than what you can agree is totally unstable…

Existance and contribution, mattering not of recognition is a blessed offering to the world.

It is the one's that think they will not be remember that often are. Those who have a lot of ego tend to be forgotten. You will be remembered.

I would say that Ted is right and so are all the others at the den. I know this I sure would miss you Ed.

I think someone like you is far from forgettable.

Everyone's words are 'notable,' my friend; and your words will be floating around somewhere on the Internet, long after you are gone. Even better, get that book together you talked about; I gave a copy of my animal book to my local library; and as long as our community has a library, my words will be somewhere on their shelves; and who knows, maybe a hundred years from now some little boy will pick up that book and read about Little Eddie and his animal friends.
