teach me love

and the past

drifts

in

and

out

of

consciousness

sometimes

it

over

takes

the present

often

destroying

futures

that glow

i remember

each

tinted

with

rose

my boy

with his hat

now a man

so far gone

far away

from me

what we were

then.

i can

not

help

the smile

that

almost

reaches

eyes

mouth

it took

so long

but

finally

we

do not

look

reach out

for

the other

you

man now

that you

are

understood

this

far sooner

than i

yet

i

understood

that lesson

in time.
