When I become an Echo

When I become an echo

Remember me in your heart

As one who visited your soul

As one who knocked on your heart

One who gave all his best

Working and making your heart a home

When I become the clip of memory lane

Remember me as that actor

Who lived and enacted love

Upon the theatre of your heart

The poor, comely, unrecognised actor

Who had nothing but the talent of charity

When I become the tales told by the moonlight

Remember me as one who made you laugh

One who passed on the torch of hope

One who failed but pushed you to greatness

Remember, I walked on the surface of your heart

Crossing the moon of your soul in the night of life

  1. Let’s love each other dearly and cherish the moment. Soon, life will be over and the wind will blow to the south of memory lane.
