You say you don't remember,
But I will never forget


I am the yellowed ivory
On the piano we played
When I couldn't reach the pedal
I am those records
You put on the shelf,
The old guitar
Collecting dust in the corner
I am the '90s song
You hear on the radio,
The dashboard in your truck
When we were keeping time
I am the music
Written on napkins and
Scraps of paper
Wedged in-between the pages
Of some '70s piano book,
the love songs you sang
To my mother
Way back when
I'm the past, daddy.
The one wrong note
You can't fix.

life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.
