Remembering Today, Forgetting Tomorrow

Tiny pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.

They are all


I can only remember one piece

And I don’t know how I got to it.

I’m standing on an island.

Water surrounds me.

I have so much to say, 

but I can’t tell you.

I can’t pinpoint its beginning and end.

I have thoughts rising and falling,

crashing in the distance. 

Much like a young child

a squeal of a bird,

a rustle in the plants,

and I’ve forgotten.

My words always come,

but much like a shadow

the shape is constantly shifting

too fast.

I can remember my past

like I’m reliving it.

I won’t remember today tomorrow, 

just bits and pieces of it.

I’m a scrabble board with four players:

My mind

My family

My faith

My writing

The best part…they all are a part of me.

Puzzle pieces, my memory.
