My World

The Best Things in Life are the People you Love, the Places you've seen, and the Memories you've made along the way.

Living On... (poem)

She still lives on in the shining eyes
of the sister that she heartily adored,
She still lives on in the love of the parents
that first brought her to this world.

She still lives on in the melted wax
of the candle that burnt by night,
She still lives on in the thorny roses
that have long since sadly died.

She still lives on in the shattered glass
of the mirror that once reflected her smile,
She still lives on in the stopped clock
that once showed the correct time.

She still lives on in the stale wine
of the half-filled cup from which she sipped,
She still lives on in the crumpled sheets
that are now almost entirely ripped.

She still lives on in the yellowed pages
of the books that she so dearly read,
She still lives on in the broken photo frames
that she once looked at every night before going to bed.

She still lives on in the tattered remains
of the diary that she once penned,
She still lives on in the half-finished letter
that she never got the chance to send.

She still lives on in the dreary darkness 
of the home that she once occupied,
She still lives on in the hearts of those
that visit it everyday - not to let her memories die.

OmG!! Where are you getting all these ideas and emotions..they are..I mean, just look at this part:

"She still lives on in the stale wine
of the half-filled cup from which she sipped,
She still lives on in the crumpled sheets
that are now almost entirely ripped."
