What Shall We Remember?
by Ricky Ian Gordon

Dear Friend,
Leaving so soon?
Cast a lasting shadow
on the paling moon.
What shall we remember
of that afternoon?
What shall we remember?
Cool sand.
Dazzling light.
You beside the ocean
with your eyes so bright.
What shall we remember
of that precious night?
What shall we remember?
Slow dance!
Music and bliss!
Loving arms,
and one
uninterrupted kiss!
Oh if it were only that…
instead of this.
What shall we remember
of the ones we miss?
Dear Friend,
pain in my heart.
I won’t be afraid
if we are meant to part.
Some things have to end
before they ever start.
What shall we remember…
what shall we remember?
