Secret Poems


Small Memory
by Jason Tomlinson

In my memory it was big but when I returned
it was even bigger and the lesson I learned
was worth hanging onto indefinitely
because the blessing had grown much bigger than me
you see in the beginning it was something with which I participated
interacted with but now it has been elevated
to a level that I cannot attain to
I am overwhelmed at what I cannot now do
that’s a good thing because it once was at my height
but now its summit is something out of sight
it once was a brother I was most eager to see
now it is a father watching over me
