Do you ever worry about forgetting?

Your favorite moment?

The color of the sky?

His smile?

Do you ever fear forgetfulness,

like you are afraid to close your eyes,

afraid to miss a moment,

of this beautiful life.

  1. I have not thought about forgetting some of those things you mentioned…but oh, it is so true. One reason I have started a blog is to keep the family stories that I fear will be forgotten….so, yes, I must fear forgetting some things. Thanks for this powerful, yet simple poem of wisdom. Jackie

  2. This is a keeper. It speaks to my worries as I age…and as I become forgetful but also to my hope to hold onto each moment…of this wonderful life.
