1948 Seems Like Yesterday - Poem by Ted Sheridan

I look down upon the remains of my life,
lying like so much meat, on a stainless steel table
covered with a three hundred and sixty thread
white Egyptian cotton sheet.
My arms cross folded across eternity;
the smell of formaldehyde intercedes
with what seemed for the moment
like the perfect dream…..

    yesterday is gone
    and today has come
    may the joys
    what seemed
    for a moment--
    let them be
    forever
