The Old Guy … Think Kindly …

22 Comments


Think Kindly

.

When I am gone,

I hope you think kindly of me.

That there is a memory of us,

That brings a smile …

To your heart.

.

Remember … these old eyes once,

Contained a spark of life,

With all the joy of the young,

With all the hope ..

Of the loved.

.

When I am gone,

Remember our laughter,

The tears we shared,

And how our hearts sang,

From our shared whimsical smiles.

.

Oh when I am long resting in peace,

Put down the words for all to read.

To share once again,

This day and next,

My prayer and smile for all of you.

I was told by my grandfather that if you are destined to hang you'll never drown. I have never been afraid of water . . .

  6. Aw, I love this poem! Beautiful! I can imagine you thinking about your wife as you wrote it? So you have two cameras or how did you get that photo – which by the way I think is so great, I can imagine you giving that look to Kat!

    • Two cameras Ms Shelley. Holding one and the other on a tripod and tripped with a wireless shutter release. I did a whole book like this with me standing in front of all kinds of places around town. The wireless shutter release was the best twenty dollars I’ve spent on camera paraphernalia. g
