Think This of Me

If I should die
think this of me

That I tried to see
through your eyes
as you see through mine

In this inside out
blind-leading-blind way
We stumble forward

If I should die
think this of me

What I loved changed you.

    Powerful! Almost a challenge that one life gave quality life to another! A fascinating piece!

    I enjoy this poem. I like how the rhythm is a little off, giving us a stumbling effect to go with your topsy-turvy lines, “in this inside out / blind-leading blind way / we stumble forward,” and which makes the full and certain stop at the end even more satisfying. Lovely job.
