Remember Me Poem by Margaret Mead

Remember Me

Rating: 4.5


Remember Me:
To the living, I am gone.
To the sorrowful, I will never return.
To the angry, I was cheated,
But to the happy, I am at peace,
And to the faithful, I have never left.
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you stand upon a shore, gazing at a beautiful sea - remember me.
As you look in awe at a mighty forest and its grand majesty - remember me.
As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity - remember me.
Remember me in your heart, your thoughts, your memories of the times we loved,
the times we cried, the times we fought, the times we laughed.
For if you always think of me, I will never be gone.

Good piece of writing. We should always remember the ones who are gone, the beautiful memories.

This is the most HORRIBLE voice. There are too many bad digital voices but this was the worst. Way to ruin this.

The world would be a better place if we could learn not to be quick condemn. Each person deserves a 'thank you' for making an effort

'For if you always think of me, I will never be gone.' - One who is in heart, is in thought too, and cannot be gone.

there is one important line missing from her poem. " I cannot speak, but I can Listen." which is followed by: I cannot be seen but I can be heard.
