Death and Memories

They died but they never left
Memories linger on
That moment, we remember what their retort would have been
We see their smile vividly
We think we have moved on without them
We think death has taken them away
They are with us
That quiet moment we sit alone,
The memories of our time with them flood our mind
They are not gone
They are not forgotten
They live with us,
In our breath
We keep them alive though they are dead
They are with us
To the many friends I have lost
Or I think I lost to death
Your memories linger on
Fresh everyday
When I die
Then your memory, which I have held on to for so long goes with me
Then I become
