A CURVE IN THE CURB:
I will still be here when you’re long gone, watching when you think
I’m not looking, listening when you think I don’t hear. I will call
you in a minute, think of you every day, keep the faith without proof.
I will keep my mouth shut more often than open & endeavour not to be
so serious, laugh when I catch my reflection. I will be right here,
will take your call, remembering your name then forget it. Don’t get
upset, I forget everyone until they become pictures, remembering
pictures before words, make lists to remember everything I forget.
Now I remember what it was I was doing, watching, listening,remaining
here long after you’re gone.
