Am I giving you
remembrances of myself,
of you, this time?


What sticks?
The hard words? Where I told you:


“Hurry up with that coat!
We haven’t got all day;
I’m tired of asking!”


Or the songs I made
for you, that you laughed
at and tried your new voice on.


Which moments shape your future?
Which will you forget?
