Leaving Memories

What should I take with me?
Nothing I will leave behind of me, in earth?
What my heart should do?
In vane we have come, to sprout in earth?
Lets leave at least the flowers
Lets leave at least the songs.

Nezahualcoyotl.

we do leave behind the pedals we flower!

Do you know where I could find Nezahualcoyotl's poetry on the web or a book? all i can find is his history

Such a good philosophy. I found these lines which I think have the same feeling

in time of daffodils who know
The goal of living is to grow.
