A good all round poem, with unique word selection. I like the rhyming scheme and flow. An end of life poem where the writer tells a little about himself. I'm pleased you shared this with us. Good work. ~mel~

Excellent paean to what makes us all complete. Love of living is what I call it. Once living becomes natural, loving our vacation on earth also becomes natural. Great post!..John

A beautiful poem written from the heart. I too would like to believe that my poems which I have written with emotion, love and life's experiences might be read and enjoyed after I no longer exist. Thank you for sharing. Franky

An interesting comment. We all want to leave something of note before we are called, and of course the written words lasts a lot longer than the spoken.
You got one thing right, the power of Love.
To express a a total Love to all mankind is not unique, but nevertheless special.
The amount of your poems should amount for an indication of your energy and devotion, in itself.
I have no awards, do not have a prodigious output but put my two cents in where I believe warranted.
Cheers,
irish

This is a deep, multi-level poem which is open to many interpretations. I feel love in every line, the tinge of sadness, depression and other emotions. They say, unrequited love is the strongest of all - I agree.

Great imagery and visuals. Your last line brings a nice closure.

I enjoyed your thoughtful poem about the way one feels after s/he has passed. Your words flow smoothly and create great imagery. I could see everything you wrote. I agree with the one in the poem--what a great legacy to leave for others.
Thanks for sharing.
Respectfully, Jan

Good afternoon from across the pond. Mr. PoeticXscape, your creative mind has me impressed. I am glad that you have admitted that you do not plan to stop. Good for you!
In your poem I felt the earnestness of your plea to have people to not forget you. You wish to add to their lives with love and goodness. You have emotions that touch your life. You are a writer. You enjoy that. And you share that through your work. How nice. I agree.

Compelling and spot-on--this stunning verse renders your message in well-chosen phrasing. Haunting and thought-provoking. Brilliant piece.

sugg tweak: happiness is not endured (pertains to suffering)
