Memory Can Only Tell Us What We Were

User Rating: / 4
PoorBest 

Memory can tell us only what we were,
In company with those we loved;
It cannot help us find out what each of us,

Alone, must now become.
Yet, no person is really alone;
Those who live no more still echo
Within our thoughts and words,
And what they did has become
Woven into what we are.
