Who are you?

Who are you?

A Poem by Sage
"

Losing someone can be a painful thing; especially if it's someone close. It is hard to move on with life without getting proper closure. It is worsened by the fact that most people forget who they are

"

Who Are You?

You used to be someone everyone knew
The memory of you is as fresh as morning dew
Now it’s all changed, faint like a distant star,
As the world moves on, it asks who you are

What is to be said
You chose a path that only you can tread
What is to be done
O’course, leave us all and go have fun

You are oblivious to the pain,
That hangs around like the clouds before the rain
All you used to think was fame,
Without any shame, you told ‘Think of all that we could gain!’

In the beginning you were a mere nobody
As time progressed you grew quite mighty
Always the difficult path you chose,
Whatever the crisis, above it you rose

You reached the peak,
Though everything looked bleak
You called me your friend, your crew
Even I did not know what you were going to do!

Laughed along the way,
As time flew away
I only wish I could take back,
The day everything went off track

Do I feel Sad? 
D****t! I should’ve gotten the cue
That’s just a word
What you went through was out of this world

You thought it was a load
A burden you did not want us to hold
Help? You should have just asked!
Now look how you are just in the past

You’re slowly starting to fade,
And maybe that’s how it works; fate
But no matter how distant or far
I’ll never forget who you are

Im lucky as I have never yet had to deal with loss, well not with a person anyway I love animals and the animals in my family are family, my sister lost her darling Lexi, who is a cat by the way, not long ago. Was hard on us all and its still hard we really miss her she was quite a cat. Anyway sorry for rambling on but yer thats the closest thing I have had to a loss.
This poem is really good, then again all your work is.
It was deep, emotional, meaningful, soulful, and written from your heart.
Im sure plenty people can relate to this, loss is a hard thing to deal with, and a popular subject people write about.
Great write as always :)

Enjoyed reading your poem. It was very heartfelt and sincere. "You’re slowly starting to fade, And maybe that’s how it works; fate But no matter how distant or far I’ll never forget who you are." We do grieve over a lost loved one or relationship.. It is the good times you shared together that should be cherish. In that way that person lives on inside you. Your poem is nicely written and expressed. Well done!

This is a well written piece lamenting the memory of someone who was close to you. It's always the hardest to deal with the loss of someone when there were loose ends left to tie up between the two of you. Nice work.

Yes..
So well portrayed.. I lost my father when I was a teen and your words took me to that time and back.
Captivating, emotional and vivid!

It is said that death can claim bodies but not their presence.
Very well penned!

Change is always good... I slowly reveals who we truly are in that moment of change.... Some stay with us and some leave..... It's up to us to determine who we decide to change along with..... Wonderful job of execution with your thought process.......

'wound is the place where light enters the soul'-Rumi. People change.Maybe the words 'i know you' are actually rhetorical .A Good read.
