That which Shines Light

This poem was inspired by my friend who is courageously and gracefully living with alzheimer’s.


I will not forget you,
would the flower 
forget the rain,
or the evening sky
the sunset...
No,
only long for them again,

long after you
have forgotten me,
I will still remember
your kindness,
your courage,
and your gentle grace,
for the soul always remembers
that which shines light upon it's face
