A chapter in the book One Thousand Cranes

-- And When I Die --

by Gypsy Blue Rose

— And When I Die —

Don’t look for me in a grave
      I will not be there

You will see me
      in blue moonlight rays
      and the bright sun

Don’t cry for me when I'm gone
      I’ll be in the summer breeze
      caressing your face

Look for me in dewdrops
      over a blue rose's petals 
      and listen to my voice

      in children's laughter

You will see me 
      in my darling children 
      and grandchildren's eyes

Don’t cry for me when I’m gone
      I will remain close by
      and the love I feel for you
      will fill your heart

My ashes will ride high tide
      and some will blow in the wind
      the breeze will touch your face

Don’t cry for me when I am gone
  I will never be afar 




FREE VERSE is an open form of poetry, which in its modern form arose through the French vers libre form. It does not use consistent meter patterns, rhyme, or any musical pattern. It thus tends to follow the rhythm of natural speech.

Thank you very much for reading my poem.
