All else, a blur

20190625_143345.jpg

Wrapped in a fleece blanket

I saw you,

In the nurse’s arms

So little

A frown between your baby brows

Were you really mine?

A tadpole, hair standing up

Big, black eyes

blinking

Locked with mine

Smiled

And made me theirs

Forever

The world around faded

Was, just you

Just me

And that one moment

Frozen

in  the labyrinth

Of time

Then they whisked you away

All else, a blur

 

Decades later

They say I’m forgetting-

Have forgotten

Numbers, names

Dates

A pack of garbled images

Places, stories

But-

 I remember

the sun streaming in 

half-open windows

A stretcher

Hustle-bustle

in the  long corridor

Voices

And a smile

Soft

Radiating light

A new life

Shutting out the noise, a silence

I see you

I see me

And that moment

Frozen

Forever

In time

All else, a blur
