Would You Remember Me? - Poem by Kelly Iyogun

If tomorrow comes and I not along with it,
would you remember me?
If I change before thy eyes,
Would you remember me for the boy I once was; Innocent, righteous and calm yet silly?
If distance build a boundary So big Where our friendship once stood,
dear friend would our friendship break the barriers that hold us? or would I be just another you once knew?
If success comes knocking on your door before mine would you give it directions to my abode or walk with it forgetting you once knew me?
If hours accumulate to years, days to seasons, and the years becomes history.Would I be remembered by the people you told about me?
If you could paint a picture of me to last a thousand lifetime, will I be as fresh in mind as I am now?
I ask for I do not know,
Am I just like a passing wind, refreshing only when am around? Lest you seek another in my place.
I ask for I do not know,
is ours a friendship set to sail eternity or float ashore to forgetfulness?
I ask for I do not know,
Would my name remain on thy lips like the lips of a babe upon breast milk or would it be quenched as quickly as water quenches thirst?
Dear friend, would you remember me if you lived a thousands years more? I ask for I do not know.
