Such beautiful sentiment here. This really resonated with me as you've described some of my own reasons for writing: a way to give love and hope to as many people as I can and to leave my love with the world after I'm gone. Thank you for sharing this, and I hope you're planning on sticking around for a while longer. ;-)

Your poem is very nice to read about the words in poems bring back remembrance. It is nice to read without a picture.
Congratulations on your wins and good luck with your poem.

Hello Poeticxscape, this is a lovely read - a fitting epitaph. I've not seen your work on Fanstory, but enjoyed this one immensely - particularly -
Let the flowers take root on the surface of your heart.
Let the wonder of love start.
In those lines, my soul lies hence.
I did not perch on anyone's fence...... Warm regards Dorothy x

I just loved this it is a lovely epitaph and the kind of thing I would like to say to everyone when I am gone. I have led a good life and had lots of fun and hopefully made many people happy with what I have done. Well done great poem.

Hi PoeticXScape,

This poem is a gift of stirring words left for all who read them. That is the enduring wonder of words, they remain long after the person who said them is gone (from the here and now).

I felt them and feel lucky and blessed to have read them today. Thank you for posting this prophetic gem :))

Stay well and happy,
Senyai

If poem compares to a painting, yours is one full of colors and emotions. Wise decision not to add a picture or an artwork. If you see "strongly" the "shape" of your writing, it resembles a fat woman with open arms, ready to hug readers. Recognition is perfectly deserved. Good luck in future writings!

Loved this poem and the thoughts behind it. Yes, when you are gone you will leave a piece of you behind forever and for everyone. What a great gift to leave your loved ones and strangers who might stumble upon your words. My favorite lines are your second stanza. It tells us everything about how you want to be remembered.

Just beautiful! so eloquently written. Your words flow in the style of a bygone era. If you could for your next one make the font a little bigger in the advanced editor. All the best, Laura

When I Am Gone
by PoeticXscape

We poets can be immortalized by our poems legacy. Your poem reminded me of that. The rhymes do not seem forced. Your poem flows well. It draws on emotions and it presents strong images.
