If You Have to See Me


I want others to view me 

as a love cloud.

A floating entity.

Something I think

the world needs.


I almost don't

want to be seen.

I wanna be particles

the air someone breathes.


I wanna be felt 

more than seen.

Impact without tangibility,

almost invisibility.


I wanna be felt

like a mother's kiss on your cheek.

A kind stranger's guesture

or by helping the meek.


I don't want to be seen

because what will people remember?

Will they remember your face

or will they remember your love?


If you have to see me,

learn from me.

Be kind to everyone

Honor someone's memory.
