On Memory

I wonder about things in life that disappear

These milestone moments that ebbed and flowed

creating memories, hazy and crystal clear

Some shimmer, ephemeral yet somehow near

like lights reflecting on a rainy road

I wonder about things in life that disappear

I mourn the loss of ones held dear

slipping through my hands as if borrowed

Creating memories, hazy and crystal clear

Some are strong enough to reappear

if only in dreams like a favorite episode

I wonder about things in life that disappear

I suppose we all seek visions from yesteryear

to replenish our spirits — a personal ode

to memories both hazy and crystal clear

With a smile and sometimes a tear

I am thankful to carry this heavy load

I wonder about the things in life that disappear

like memories, both hazy and crystal clear

  1. The rhythm, the repetition, and the depth of thought that went into this poem drew me in and kept me rereading. It’s beautiful. A musician could find a melody to sing this one, It is so lyrical. Beautiful, {{{MK}}} ❤
