Lest We Remember

Reflection of New York City.


Today was a good day
A baby missing a mother smiled
Art was hoisted on a wall
Art was toasted by a wall

A long life lived had passed
News of an upcoming birth
Filled a distant heart

A beach dog was found
A cool breeze blew
A wedding anniversary kiss was shared

Those who did
Remembered
Those who did not
Continued forward

Laughter and friends
Call me back from my thoughts
Call me back for a beer
And a slap on the back

Eleven years removed
From a late summer day
When the rules were changed
People went on with their lives
Today was a good day
