Now while my lips are living
Their words must stay unsaid,
And will my soul remember
To speak when I am dead?
Yet if my soul remembered
You would not heed it, dear,
For now you must not listen,
And then you could not hear.
A wry, pithy poem of exceptional merit- also very amusing.
Very well written, and expressed, with such deep emotions till death and beyond.. Bonnie Collins

Ironic truth! ...when emptiness fills a home.
' How can they shut me underneath a stone? ' - The terror from the thoughts of death, the ANXIETY which the unknown & death brings, which usually has an offspring of depression. She doesn't want to die as much as she does. It's ironic: her love for life causes her a deep insecurity over the reality that she will die, causing a depression over death which ultimately led her to kill herself. Baffling and yet, so relative. I relate so much to this.
My heart whispers to you Words that I cannot say, Wonder if my soul would Tell you some fateful day. Long after I am dead Buried and ground to dust, Heavens will this message Reach your heart if it must. Beautiful poem like this one, can only be replied with inspiration, by another poet.
