People That You Remember
There are people that you remember like stories,
For a minute if the story is a good one.
You are living the tale,
If one is a traveler, as I am.
These stories are often all
That can travel with me.
I have told the town that they will be missing a hero in my eyes,
"Change is a must," I said.
But change follows an obscure perspective,
And the town and I admit other heroes will enter.
But your story will remain clear,
And be quite popular in our library
