When I Die, My Words Live On - Poem by Dr Shamim ali

You will find them everywhere
They're seen in the galaxy
Or maybe in the shining planets
They're seen in the shining sun
You can find them in dawn
You can find them in the dusk
Guide you in the bleak nights
They're seen in the blowing wind
That entices the autumn leaves to dance
They're written in the delicate rose petals
That brings the spring fragrance
They're seen in the winter snows
As snowflakes start to fall
They're on the snow clad mountains
In the rocks and glaciers
They are seen in the roots of plants
Will make the soil stronger
Will replenish the soil with nutrients
They will be embedded in leaves
They are seen in sand sheets
You will see them in the undulating dunes
You will see them in ocean waves
You will see them in sand seas
They are seen in blowing wind
You will find them in star shape dunes
You will find them in oases near springs
They can replenish water supplies
They're seen in hidden dreams like stars
You will not touch them
If you follow them
Will lead you to the realm of secret words
They are heard in the sublime noise
My words will penetrate into your ears as Allegro
In a slow movement as Adagio
They are known as secret words in sonata
