Prompt 21, Hour 17

Coming to an end

I’ve done all I could do

Just a few more breaths

Until I’m through

However I will not be forgotten

My life not in vain

Because people remember me

How and why I came

Each petal that withers, and each seed that drops off

Is carried away as someone who knew me

Heard of me

Learned from me

Remembers me

Shares me

My roots firmly in place

My foundation made

I grew

I stood

I bloomed

I gave life

And even when

My spirit, my breath leaves this fleshy body

My soul always stays

Parts of me linger in the wind

For that is why I came
