WHEN I AM GONE

When I am gone

 

I will leave no shadow behind

when I am gone.

Just a few keepsakes for you to find.

Bits and bobs that I’d once held dear,

back of drawer smiles, a single tear.

 

I will leave no sorrow behind

when I am gone.

Perhaps odd small pieces of my mind.

Only bad jokes and all my crazy stuff,

not all of it of course but just enough.

 

I will leave no angst behind

when I am gone.

Think of me as a man who was kind.

With the dawn live by burning bright,

rest and be peaceful through the night.

 

I will not leave you behind,

when I am gone.

Let not your life to the past bind.

Look forward with eyes that gleam,

I’ll pop in at times when you dream.
