you made it to ninety two
which i guess puts you
in small company even there
and of all your odd ideas
and endearing idiosyncrasies
what i remember most vividly
is the sound you made

i hear and see my own vivid william. thank you for this image.
God bless Grandpa's and uncles and old friends.
Like this! I've worked with the elderly for years. Simple, well done! But I wonder about the "puts you in small company" as people are living longer and longer these days. Still many don't reach 92.
so sweet hank. I only noticed the rhyme on 2nd read...even sweeter. um..'are' the sounds you made?
nice poem. William would love it.
I like this flashing thought that overlooks time as it sinks into psyche.
thanks kitkat, had changed sound to sounds and forgot the is but have gone back to original.
Cute...very cute. Something william probably wouldn't even notice about himself, and you noticed it and remember him for it. I have absoutely no suggestions. Very nice.
:( Did he die? I'm glad that you captured his soul in this poem, and shared him with us. A few strong characters become immortalised in your art.
Full stop line six? Terrific write.
amazing i really think its a accurate and really discriptive poem. Personally and correct if i am wrong but i get the idea your trying to say when someone has left regardless the circumstance you always end up remembering their old idd habits or actions
