A Poem by ksscampos

love, even if it is a one way street... just love





Many wake up and go about the day

Other eyes are shut, breathless

Lifeless they will remain


With a pulse that fails to perfuse

Desynchronized beats to death tunes

Will we ever again meet?

Or is this really it?


The more questions asked

The further faith is displaced

From birth, all that is taught

Dismantled, if reason is sought


Once alive, you will remain

In the minds of whom here stay

No after life you’ll need to seek

No pearly gates

Saint Peter you will not greet


Make your time here worthwhile

Love and be loved with no desire for compensation

No need for creed or denomination

Only love

Love for the human race

For the world

Even those you claim to hate


When it so happens

That your eyes are shut eternally

Leave behind good memories

Let them tell tales of the one who loved

Even though he knew no god


For when your lungs no longer breathe

Your time on earth forever cease

And the people whom you touch

Will always remember

That one kind act,

That person who simply loved

Muchly welcome...:).........
Beautiful, you've touched me with the last two stanzas. It's not what you own that's important, you will be remembered by the deeds you do. Do good to people and they will always talk of that when they think of you. Very well done.

The last few lines are really touching, is your poetry a personal experience or thoughts?
