Default I Was Here

I wrote this poem when I was in college about 2000 years ago. It's a little melodramatic, as college students tend to be, but I still like it for some reason. It's a good poem for people who were atheists, agnositics, or who had no specific religious beliefs. If you like it, feel free to pass it on, just make sure to attribute it to me. Thanks!

I Was Here

I was here, I lived, I died
And maybe someone even cried
A small life unnoticed by most of the whole
But loved by my friends as we touched soul to soul
Loved by my cats as we touched fur to hand
Loved by the Earth as we touched foot to sand

And the mountains still stand as they did when I came
My in the same.
A small life unsung, but still I take pride.
Because I was here.
And I lived.
And I died.
