IMGP3393bWhen we are gone
do we care
about all we left behind?

Do we worry
or wonder
about our claimed legacy?

Do our daydreams
dissipate
into twilight memories?

Or do they linger behind?

When we are gone
are our cares
fast forgotten and erased?

Or do we take
one last look
over pale ghostly shoulders?

When we are gone
does time stop
for us, dead in its tracks?

Or do we linger longer?
