If I Forget

Older, we redefine
our lives
a different shape inventing
we paint we poem
meet a friend
tp say all that we didn’t have time
to before our jobs
are different less money
more time here we are
lucky to be right here
trying still to understand
mystery that is life
the word that is life
trying still to understand
that in the end, in the small end
understanding matters less
than right now

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
