99. Momentary yet Lasting


Time fades my memory

Of things I do best

Yet I remember only the momentary

The first step I took with zest

The eyes see the world

Of colors, words in my book

Yet I remember only the glances

The first flitting look

The ears hear the voices on the street

Of people, musical chart

Yet I remember only the beat

The first gentle sound of heart

The hurt is deep in the act

Of callous anger, neglect

Yet I remember only the fact

The first word I reject

Love gets thick by holding

Of arms, limbs much

Yet I remember only the caressing

The first spine tingling touch

Fortune favors bravery

Of achievement at frontier

Yet I remember only the boundary

The first bridge crossed without fear

Life may be cruel without rhyme

Of grandeur, philosophy, disaster

Yet I remember only the time

The first moment of laughter
