Mere Things

Mere things don’t matter,
or so we’d like to think;

but on the brink
of forgetting,

of letting
go,

some mere thing
turns us

to remembering.

  1. A beautiful thought, expressed so well. I’ll keep it with me to read when a dear one leaves me.

  2. A beautiful thought, expressed with tenderness. A poem that I’ll save to read when a dear one leaves me.

  3. Cathmar, what a marvelous poem. It says so much in so very few words…and it’s one most of us can relate to. Thank you for your talent and your sharing… I know it means a lot to us, your readers… Lois
