Our arteries will harden, and
The river can’t deliver us.
If we forget to appreciate
The good in another, they won’t
Talk to us: lives will be lost.
If our memories are failing,
Recover them by music, stories, painting –
As re-vision makes us stronger.
It is an angel.
If we forget to drink in commemoration
Our senses are superficial:
We have forgotten what love is and
That is a failure –
It is our Inspiration.
