When I am Gone/Blue Moon

When I am Gone,

By Terry Scott Niebeling

 

When I am gone think of my face with bright eyes and a contagious smile-think for a while.

 

When I am gone know that I am still near the Mississippi River.  I am in each village, town, and city, respectively.  La Crescent, La Crosse, and Minneapolis-truly.

 

My thoughts will be more resilient than mortality.

 

When I am gone I am actually with you.

Don’t remember me for the things I did, but for the things I do-pleasant memories.

 

 

 

When I am gone you are actually with me too.

And when I am gone know that this is the beginning; we are not through.

 

When I am gone just know that I love you.

And when I am gone know that I know you love me too.

 

All comfort, it is true.

 

When I am gone make every enemy friend.

And when I am gone smile and make amends, because all your thoughts make you.

Blue Moon,

By Terry Scott Niebeling

 

In the end, when we are all through-said and done, look up in the sky and remember the Moon is a Hologram.

Made by those on earth to feel better about being alone in the universe.

Don’t ask why

However, I am still with you.  So fear not.

Standing right by your side.
