To celebrate a thing unknown
|July 4th Parade, Show Low Arizona, July 2017|
To sit and cry a mournful groan
To celebrate a thing forgot
Inside we feel a creeping rot
Pretend to push away the hurt
But damage done, a broken heart
Deeply crave another’s love
Another’s care – “The remembered one”
Why did the other fail to do?
If they knew they’d suffer too.
Can we say with words not spoke?
Can we write no ink in stroke?
Help me with a gentle nudge
Remember things you begrudge
If somehow I forgot to do
Please help me celebrate with you.
