Not Here

A poem of missed days and birthdays

© Dennett

Your birthday hovers like the moon
shining on us both —
distanced by time and miles —
you left here a child,
soon a teen,
I remember one
and don’t know the other.

I didn’t dream your tomorrow…

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
