Don't let my words fade

Don't let my words fade

A Poem by Najam Us Saher
"

Let my words remain in your heart forever

"
DON'T LET MY WORDS FADE
I will not live long,
I want my words to remain forever. 
I will leave my unsung songs,
Promise me, you will leave them never.
When I am no more, don't cry,
It would be deceiving me when I was alive.
So here I lay, under this tombstone with my head up high,
When people like my words and want to see me, tell them that I am no more;
Show them where I lie.
My words will not haunt you,
They will be gone along with me.
I will leave my words with you,
Don't expect them to be words of glee.
I wish that my words gain attention,
As I was not a person to be.
I lived all my life in seclusion,
Don't believe? Come and see. 
This is how I bid you goodbye.
After I live; before I die.

Author's Note

Najam Us Saher
I always wanted to write something that people read and recall that after I am gone.
Don't worry about me, it's not like I am unhappy now, I am fine. These are just words.

Ah! Thank you :)
Like a J.D Salinger story. Left the writing world and he never looked back.
"Don't expect them to be words of glee.
I wish that my words gain attention,
As I was not a person to be.
I lived all my life in seclusion,"
The above lines. Many will seek. Thank you Najam for sharing the amazing poetry.

Sure, thank you so much, keep reading.
It's human nature to want some part of us to last forever. I think people have children for this reason. And as a writer, you've expressed the desire to have your words last longer than your fallible body. I don't see this as any kind of sad write, so I am not seeing the need for your author's note. I think dying is perfectly natural & so is the desire to be eternal. I believe that our words are not the way we live forever, but it's in the way our words make a lasting impact on someone. Your message imparts a universally understood wish & the event of our death as a celebration (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
