Remembering



                                We met on a Saturday,
                                    on a sandy beach.
                                 Worshipping the sun,
                                     back then when it was
                                              safe.

                                  Speaking of small things,
                                     that I now hardly remember.

                                   But I do know,
                                        I never ask you
                                     your favorite color,
                                        or what flowers you liked.

                                    How strange it seems,
                                       remembering the small things
                                                in life,
                                       while the larger things
                                          appear so
                                                important.

This poem expresses something I have also found to be true, that little things count for a lot, and large things often aren't that relevant. Little details and little moments are what we often remember later, because they may represent something more, something we care about. I like the skill, the economy, with which this idea is illustrated here. Excellent work!
