The first minutes of your life

are full of light and excitement.

Everything is new

and it floods your senses

with introductions.

It promises you

each moment going forward

will be a new beginning

in language, motion

and memory.

The last hours of your life

are full of flickers and overcast skies.

Everyone is there

to hold your hand and speak with you

one more time.

You share every memory

with its light and excitement,

and they promise to remember

your smile.
