Sunlit Memory

Sunlit Memory

Sunlight entered the room,

Or was I outside

With a woman I couldn’t remember,

Details erased by everything it struck.

I could only stare

And try to place how

I knew her.

Lowered the shade,

Or shieled my eyes

And blinked

Until her face was clear

And comforting even though

I was alone

And thinking backwards.

We had dated once,

Maybe even married.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
