Is it fatal?
This gaping hole
Where memories used to be
Of childhood recollections fading
Some memories so clear
Others have gone
To that black hole
Where recollections fade
Some to be resurrected
Only when someone
Close to you
Brings up that
Embarrassing moment you forgot
Yet life goes on so harmonious
Making new memories
But what of the old?
I’ll write down what I remember
Talk to those who are still here
And resurrect the past
With words I’ll paint
My memories engraining them
In my mind
Sharing them with my family
And other folk

They shall live on.
