As if

by Sara Herlihy

Like a cloud
Floating through a clear blue sky waiting…
Just waiting…
Until I evaporate and disappear.
As if I never was.
As if I didn’t impact the millions of eyes who saw my magnificent beauty grace their souls.
As if I never was.
I KNOW I was for a moment.
As I floated, changed shape.. with millions of children comparing me to their favorite toys.. favorite places…
favorite animals…
favorite people…
because as I float by and disappear from your sight I have embodied every single one of these things in my weightless being.
And I know I WAS.
I was something.
I touched many lives and
I will be remembered.

Some external links: The Bat’s Poetry Cave. — Fledermaus’s poetry site. Talking Writing Monster. — the irreverent and irrelevant chatter on subjects both serious and not quite. A free for all board. You can scribble anything on it without registration (but it doesn’t let spammers in). You can even post your poems. — a search engine from France. It’s an alternative because there are a few alternatives, like Bing, Duckduckgo, and Ecosia. And there is Yandex, the ultimate language-oriented search engine for the Russophone world. Commercial Links: Russian Commerce – the foreign trade assistance agency Other links: Poems and poetry in Russian (if you are reading this in English, as you obviously are, then you’d have to switch the language, the language switch is on the menu.
