Forty Years Ago - Poem by Louise Riveiro Mitchell

Forty years my how the time goes by
Yet in an instant I can recall it all in my mind
Memories of those times still bring tears to my eyes
A phrase, a gesture that infectious grin
This young Senator gave us hope and we believed and followed him
We were so young back then
Looking for the answers to those questions of how, why and when
It's said that time clouds one's memory
Only allowing us to remember and see what we want it to be
But forty years ago those of us who were the country's youth will never forget Bobby
I often think if fate has passed him that day
Would our country be different today
Now he's in our memories
The youth of today will never know the man named Bobby
Forty years ago and young Senator died
Forty years later we still seek the answers to the questions how and when but most of all why
