SoCS

***

She thought “I should make a note…”

And then sat down to write

Forgot what to remember

“Oh yes, it’s Steven’s quote!”

Looked around for a pen

The paper by her side

By the time she found the ink

Once again the memory died.

Frustrated in her older years

Bought a phone recorder fine

Now she simply speaks her thoughts

‘Cause it’s by her all the time.

A sorry attempt at humor about a problem for today with so much on our minds.

One thought on “SoCS

  1. I didn’t make a note
    Of the things I might have said
    Or remember what I wrote
    Of those thoughts within my head
    In letters that were written
    And perhaps were never read
    As you nestled someone else
    Within your heart
    Within your bed
