Remember Me


I was born for drifting
like paper tossed in the wind
never staying in one place long.
A couple of nights
might see me stay
and then I am off again
whenever the travelling calls.
However, when I go
please remember me
in case I come back this way
on my travels again.

I have no pets or luggage
and I don't even have a wife.
All I got is what I wear
as I am travelling light.
No car to my name
I hitchhike for a ride.
People can call me
whatever they like
and I only ask one thing of them
please remember me
in case I come this way again.

Home is wherever
my feet take me
and then only
for a night or two.
I have no responsibilities
to tie me down anywhere
I will just go on and on.
Until I can go on no more
and all I ask of you is
please remember me
in case I come this way again.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
