When I look at a dictionary
I think about the fact that
I too shall be gone
One of these days

Just as words
I too shall fade
From everyday speech
And everyday conversations

When people say
“I never heard that word before”
I think of people saying
Years after my descent into the grave
“I forgot all about her”

So I write and I read
So I can know
That these words I am seeing
Are remembered
And are important
And so am I
