(One of my earliest works, but recently posted due to refreshed memory) Time has the patient power to erase or at least dilute our memories. The few left intact are often distorted--viewed now as through a haze. Only occasionally is a remembered emotion embe dded deeply enough to withstand the scouring of aging and experience. Those events still slash us viciously with their ugliness or sooth and nourish us with their loveliness.

 

 
Perhaps our lives are measured by
The days and years until we die,
Or maybe by the loves we’ve known,
Or children raised and on their own.
 
How sad to know that some are gauged
By precious moments lost and aged—
A shard of broken memory
I’ll treasure for eternity.
 
The music of those moments passed,
Forgotten as the years amassed.
But looking back, it matters not—
The song was but a childish plot
 
To hold her then or not at all—
And in that closeness I recall,
A sweetness not unlike the bloom
Of summer jonquils’ faint perfume.
 
She gave to me a single dance
And nevermore a wayward glance—
A fleeting time of sweetened bliss
That left me deep in love’s abyss.
