Forget Your Former Self! It Is Long Gone
Music: Love Is Easy.
Sequenced by Barry Taylor.
|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Forget your former self! It is long gone!
A father grows into a different person.
There is a love that lends your life its longing,
Having felt the beauty of belonging,
Embracing what would else have seemed to worsen,
Rejoicing in what else one might find daunting,
Singing as the harness is put on.
