The Gift

Today I have something a little different for you. I happen to know a guy who is a pretty talented poet. He does not share much of his poetry, but recently he wrote a poem and gave it to me to use. I immediately thought of sharing it with you. So here is The Gift by Martin J Bannon:

 

THE GIFT

by Martin J. Bannon

 THE MORE I DO REMEMBER
THE LESS I WANT TO KNOW
I FEEL THE TERROR BUILDING
THE THOUGHTS OF LONG AGO

THE PEOPLE THAT WERE THEN ALIVE
THE REASON I’M STILL HERE
THE GIFT OF LIFE THEY GAVE TO ME
ENRICHED MORE EVERY YEAR

THEY LIVE ALONG WITH EACH SWEET THOUGHT
THAT GROWS WITHIN MY MIND
FOR SURELY WITHOUT EACH ONE
I WOULDN’T BE HERE TO FIND

THE TREASURES THAT EACH MOMENT
CAN GIVE TO ME AND MINE
ARE SHARED WITH EVERY ONE OF THEM
OVER THE BREADTH OF TIME
