we think of forgetting as a curse

a lost name

a misplaced reason

an ununderstood glance

all telling us we've failed

somehow

in some basic human function

 

but ...

 

what if it isn't ...

 

what if forgetfulness isn't just a curse

 

after all

 

would a curse kindly relieve us

the pain of a love lost

the confusion of a misplaced why

the anguish of an overlooked look

gift us the ability to go on

somehow

being human beings

 

what if

 

God takes from us our remembery

of all but the glorious golden bits

that we may remember our frailty

our incessant need of Him

and show us our unreliable strength

that we may rely on His
