Pieces of me

by Ingrid de Klerck   Sep 2, 2008


My beloved ones,

When I die, do not grieve over me
Once released of its cage
my spirit will be in all that you see
The wind that touches your skin

The sun that warms your hearts
The sea with its waves rolling endlessly
The fertile earth where all life starts
The moon and stars that guide you in the dark

More than that, my dears
You will find little pieces of me in my poems,
that showed all my hopes and fears
My paintings in their colorful hues

But even more so I am to be found
in the hearts of all the lives I touched upon
Where my seeds of love grew safe and sound
developing into beautiful strong trees,

------trees bringing forth seeds, that will allow the message of love to be spread eternally.

    That brought tears to my eyes. It really touched my heart and made me look back at how I lived my life but also the life ahead of me. Beautiful! Wonderful job, 6/5 - if there was one! :P

    "The wind that touches your skin----"
    `Are the dashes REALLY needed here? I don't see a point in them really.

    First stanza - Really good, I love how you were speaking to everyone and not just one particular person.

    "You will find little pieces of me in my poems,
    that showed all my hopes and fears"
    `I love these lines a lot.

    "Where my seeds of love grew safe and sound
    developing into beautiful strong trees,"
    `Uniquely said! I loved how you said that the seeds of love grew into beautiful strong trees.

    "------trees bringing forth seeds, that will allow the message of love to be spread eternally. "
    `Hm, unique format I thought. Here's the dashes again.. that I'm guessing connect with the last stanza? Strong ending, nevertheless. It was really good (:

    Overalllll, really good write. It's very sweet and touching. It was amazingly written, very original poem. Well done. 5/5.
