Poem: Would Anyone Notice?

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Would anyone notice?" Is a poem where she wonders if anyone would notice if she were gone tomorrow.

Each new day brings her a sense of peace.

She hopes her life has made an impact on a heart or two.

She wonders if her mind will recall the precious memories along her journey before she departs.

"The Dash Song - Kirk Dearman"


Will Anyone Notice?

Like clockwork

a new day begins,

between sunrise and sunset

a beautiful painting adorns the sky,

like a rainbow it gives us peace

after a stormy day.

She prays her sacrifices are not in vain

wanting her dash to touch a heart or two

making a difference,

for someone along the way.

She hopes she can replay each moment

stirring feelings of joy

before her journey halts

reminding her of the gifts

that gave her life purpose.

Like clockwork

a new day will begin

when she is no longer here

she wonders if anyone will notice

her time on earth is gone.


If ever there comes a day

When we can't be together

Keep me in your heart

I'll stay there forever...

— Winnie the Pooh

Make your dash count

That is true.

All lives do matter, but I think everyone wants someone to remember they were alive and touched their life in someway.

I hope you're having a pleasant evening.

It seems i missed your comment. I apologize.

Yes it is a short poem, but it gets the point across.

Thank you for taking the time to read my work.
