Scribbled

I worry I will
forget how
to lay words out on
a page.

How sad to forget
the order we
became accustomed
to.

Do we repeat?
Repeat?
Repeat?

The brain grows old
and learns to
speak in a code
no one can decipher.

Short looping
and long phrasing
to remind someone
what they once knew so easy.

Goodbye is not always
permanent.
