Families

Lives lived and lost in time.

Who were they and why did they die?

I thought you knew back when I was young,

But it was a lie.  Time passes

So fast.

Details become someone’s

generalities and

Subtleties lose their relevance.

Everyone’s so confused —

Does anyone know how they lived?

This is useless.

Why did you tell me?

You didn’t know and no one

Remembers.
