Guest Poetry: I Remember

Friends relaxing at the shelterI remember
Invincibility
I remember
Eating everything
I remember
The fear in the eyes when we entered a buffet
I remember
Inexhaustibility
I remember
Celebrating every day
I remember
Three hours sleep was more than enough
I remember
Fearlessness
I remember
Walking Tall
I remember
Winning every fight, every game
I remember
Romance
I remember
Making friends dance
I remember
Love and ladies were just a game
I remember
Youth
I remember
Yesterday
I remember
Being one of the great men
I remember
Mike
I remember
Don and the Kraut and more
I remember
And wish they could see life again
