Remember Me

How will he remember me
Will I shine in the eye of his mind
Will the cut of my hair
Or the clothes that I wear
Be the memories left behind?

Or will there be more to me than that
Will he notice and care what I do
Will he stand proud
If I’m stoned by the crowd
‘Cause I say what I know to be true?

To think for their child Is the art of the fool
To surmise is indulgence at best
But I’d say from the start
That deep down in his heart
There’s a place for his mother to rest.

Artist's Description

Precious is the Memory

I wrote this poem in response to Helen Bascom’s image Precious is the Memory and her question beside it “How will he remember me?” which I used as the opening line. I would like to thank Helen for allowing me to display this image here and for including this poem in her Active Art blog.
