Poem Remember Me To the living, I am gone To the sorrowful, I will never return To the angry, I was cheated But to the happy, I am at peace And to the faithful, I have never left I cannot be seen, but I can be heard So as you stand upon a shore, gazing at a beautiful sea – remember me As you look in awe at a mighty forest and its grand majesty – remember me As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity – remember me Remember me in your heart, your thoughts, and your memories of the times we loved The times we cried, the times we fought, the times we laughed For if you always think of me, I will never be gone -Margaret MeadTo plant a beautiful memorial tree in memory of Nathaniel Royston, Jr., please visit our Tree Store
