Universe

A Poem by Sarah_Allen

If not you, who will remember my dreams-? 
When I lay in lifeless December streams,  
Eyes closed in slumber, tell me what does life mean? 
There has to be more than the universe deems!  

Come lay with me on the frost-kissed ground- 
A night world broken; sadly crying in sound,
 Can you hear them whisper in the air all around? 
Like faded faces who longed to be found-  

Someday we'll burn off like the stars- 
Those we long to be close are getting too far- 
Will we keep viewing life as a bursting quasar-? 
Feeding on energy until it tears us apart? 

 Will the Universe keep going; keep moving on-? 
When death comes for me- will I truly be gone?

I ponder often if there is life after death .. will we be remembered or forgotten. I haven’t forgotten my mother or grandfather yet and they have been gone many years .
I think it’s a fear we all have of a vast nothingness when our time comes and we are done. One thing is for sure, we will find out when the time comes. Hopefully acts of kindness and our poetry will live on when we’re gone.

i like this because i often wonder what there is after this life...what exactly is there?
will we be remembered, forgotten? is there something spiritual afterward or do we just lie in the ground and rot until we are just bones?
at least we hope our poetry might be that star that still shines from the heavens even if we don't.

This is not just a gem among pebbles, this is a cry for help that is so beautifully put.....and one such cry I've made so much my voice is hoarse. Stanza 1 Line 3 would still flow smoothly if you take out the "does" and tag an "s" onto "mean" to better the rhyme progression. But, Sarah, this is beautiful, and if only the universe could answer the cries of the shadows. Lord knows we need to be found. Well done!!
