I Will Remain After I Am Gone. - Poem by Mahfooz Ali

This way just once I will pass
Life is like a vapour, it cannot last.

The mark that I make is all that will remain.
If I don't make a mark no one will know I came;

To the earth and walked the paths and trod the ways.
I must make an impression that will not decay.

I must do something good for my fellows and family
While I still have a chance, I must do all I can.

I will pass this way once and for all,
My steps must be balanced so I will not fall.

The imprint I leave as I journey along
Is all that will remain after I am gone.
