We Will Remember You - Poem by Leonard Dabydeen

In many different ways. Forgetting will be
difficult to remember. Each episode takes
another turn in the journey. How memory is so
nostalgic is beyond the life of me. Sometimes
it is the way you walk, your feet make distinct
sounds. Shoes so different from sandals. Climbing
the stairs and going to your room. Humming a tune
as if singing is your birthright.

In many different ways. Forgetting will be
difficult to remember. Each morning the sun
hides the darkness of night. You walk among
the roses in the garden. Hues and tints linger
to watch your pretty smile. You in your petite dress.
Your rimmed straw hat makes the color of dried grass
shy, yet elegant.. Fruits and vegetables bundle
in your basket. You are our mother. Your patronage
needs no parenting.

In many different ways. Forgetting will be
difficult to remember. You are no longer at home. You
secretly gift yourself new real estate. You are going
to a distant land. Friendship will now have a new meaning.
Everyday we are going to wait for you. Breakfast is
at the head of the table. You are not sitting on the chair.
We know your are there. We will remember you.
We will remember you.
