NaPoWriMo Day 12 – Memory

It’s come up twice now

Memory

The white wispy shape

Ephemeral

Moving away faster

Than I can grasp

And honestly

That’s okay

I don’t need to remember

Everything

Then all these faceless

Photos

Pamphlets

Shirts and ties

Opinions

Camaraderie

And worse

And I cursed memory

I didn’t want to remember,

Not really

But then I saw that smile

And felt just a little

Kinder.
