Too many dates to remember

The time of birth, an exact moment,
coupled with the time of death- another
these are the dates you have to remember

a centennial of laughter and forgetfulness
what happens to the years in between,
is it just happenings or a time-filled question?

there are simply too many things to keep in mind
and there are things to evade
let slide like old mud, like nature taking care of its own

there is a time for birth of new ideas
there is also a time for death
there is a space for remembrance
yet there is a bigger space for forgetting

this is a poem that comes on your birthday
this is a poem that co,e on the anniversary of a death
dates to remember and forget at the same time.
