When I am Gone, Remember me. To Laila K, by Manatita

Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.


When I am gone, remember me.

No. Not because I saw in you the Light of my Beloved.

No. Not because of the sweet inspirations,

Whispering through the magnificence of our Souls.

I have made a covenant in the sanctuary of thy heart.

My breath, like the grace-like enchantment of a ballerina,

Floats effortlessly in the ether, and yet,

Remember me not for these things.

I have sung songs in your Spirit,

Woven a magical tapestry of the heavens;

My words a lover’s paradise in the celestial spheres.

Remember me not for these things.


You will find me, in the supernal beauty of a glorious dawn;

The fluttering of your heart, when, like twinkling stars,

I waltz through the constellations.

Yes. Your eyes will sparkle at the wonder of the firmament,

And say: “This too, is Him.”

For out of the frailty and infirmity of this bodily temple,

Was squeezed the last ounce of splendour.

When I am gone remember me.

I will be in the delicacy of the snowflakes on a winter’s morn;

The purity and innocence of a child’s smile,

And the sweet cadences of Cosmic Light.

I will be in the radiance of your sunset,

And in the sand pebbles, you will find my gems.

The greatness of the horizon’s edge,

Will give you a sweet and tingling inner glow,

And you will know that we are meant to BE.

When I am gone remember me, remember me …
