Just remember me

just remember me
as the gust of
the west wind,
scented with wild flowers
that gently caressed you
for a brief moment in time,
and set your
heart on fire,
not with desire,
but something sublime.

astral music perhaps,
a few words divine,
that murmured
life is beautiful,
let the sun shine.

and

when I leave the
bounds of this
mortal world,
and pass into
oblivion,
if my memory
brings a smile
to your lips
without rancor,
it was a life
lived well.

I may not know,
I may not feel,
But I know
that smile
will put wind
to my sails,
and I shall
pass in peace
the bounds
of this world.
