life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

can we retain it?

another mother forgets

the stillness of a summer evening

the beauty of food shared in lovely company

shaking in excitement for a moments glance

never to be remembered in the hours just following

what’s the lesson

for those left holding the memory?

how will it ever be enough?

how can this moment ever be enough?

will those who can remember,

remember to let go?

will those who remember,

remember for when they

come to the place of forgetting?
