Into the Blue…

Forgetting

And so a year passes
and everything changes –
and everything stays the same –
except for those we have lost
on our journey of days.
This dull, numbing feeling
that we’ve forgotten
something important
nags at the undertow of thought
that rushes headlong
into tomorrow’s plans.
And what of that shy sensation
– guilt – that blushes through us
when we stumble upon a moment
that will never be shared
with our increasingly unremembered?
That, too, washes away from us
in the current of our lives.
