What do we leave behind ?

What do you think we leave behind ?

It isn’t the mansions we own or the cars we drive

It’ll be our thoughts  that make a difference..some traces of our mind

What do you think we leave behind ?

It isn’t the dollars we earned or the degrees we added

It will be a thoughtful gesture or a random act which was kind.

What do you think we leave behind ?

It isn’t the fifteen minutes of fame the glory we bask in

It will be an idea, an act for the progress of mankind

It will be moments of joy, fear, sadness etched in the recesses of our mind

It’ll be the childlike joy of  exploring new thoughts or a random find

That is what we really leave behind

  1. There is this beautiful saying, which is so so true…
    People will forget what your name is, or what you look like, or what you said, but they will never forget how you make them feel.
    And it is true, there are so many incidents of my life, that I remember based only on the emotions, I experienced at that point!
    Well written.:)
