A poem about time and memory

the prayer of memories

The ability to remember

Those things you wish you could never forget

Blessed be

The timeliness to think

The wonder of persistence

Blessed be

How forsaken is that being

That, upon looking back,

Remembers nothing

Praise them for they are lost

The food we ate that we never wanted to forget

Those times where we experienced sheer bliss or profundity

Those people whose voices we wish we could hear again

Those make a life worth living.

What good is a sunset if it never happened?

What good is a love if it ceased to ever be?

We take so much for granted, the ability to recall, recite, remember. It's not one given freely, nor does it last forever.

Praise be to it. That which we have experienced and know no longer.

Rejoice to those things which are gone, forgotten, and beyond our comprehension.

Rejoice to the fleeting time we have, of the events that we can no longer discern.

Rejoice to the finality of entropy.

Rejoice

Rejoice!

REJOICE!

amen
