“WHEN I’M GONE”

Day 3 for #NaNoPoblano2021. Major Theme: “A Few of My Earliest Things”. Sub-theme: “10 of My Earliest Poems”

Today, I am re-sharing a poem. An ode, actually (it has a melody). This first came out as part of my post, Ode Things, which I did for another popular writing challenge. I can’t help but re-share the poem since this was an important part of my poem-writing history. For more recent samples, please visit the POETRY NOOK.

I have always been a sentimental soul, so it is no wonder I made this sentimental ode. It was actually inspired by quotes from Michael Landon and Michael Mills.
