BrooksLooks @ A Patchwork of People and Time

A Patchwork of People and Time

in a life of joyful moments
i recall those we shared now
your face appears to me at last and
all the moments we shared somehow

i ponder too the great catalogue
of all the interesting souls
those like you who came my way
those who left the biggest holes

perhaps enough of time has passed
to stop and start to measure
one’s accomplishments
and the lifelong work we traded
in the end for safety’s pleasure

now at last i add them up
and wonder where they went
those who’ve come and gone at last
both hell and heaven sent

i wish the moments lasted longer
and i came to knew you well
but time and tide were both against us
in a life ‘tween storm and swell

my life is quieter,  contemplative
with each one who now passes
i realize the moments were all like jewels
it’s the memories one amasses

my life is made of all those times
a patchwork of people and time
i remember you now once again
forever part of mine
