I forgot

Silly of me
You and I
So many conversation
Bantering, listening
Crying, learning
Silly of me
To forget
We were still two different worlds
Yours much younger but so much more
Mine, more surveying now
The memories
Silly of me to not accept
You are not I
Nor should you be
Nor could you remake me
Or even better make be better
At this late time
Ah, but that is the rub
I don’t need you to be better
Or different
As I am just remembering
The little girls eyes
That always memorized
Now I just watch
And embrace this time
This fading time
Of your face.
