Eulogy for Forgotten Times

The driven commutes without mentionable
weather or changed radio stations.
 
A day spent entirely alone 
at home, missing no one.
 
A familiar walk by the river
lost in thought.
 
The day you left work 
as though shortly after arriving.
 
Let’s honor those that’ve carried 
us here with no expectations.
 
Between pain’s insistence on permanence
and joy’s inspired impressions, we’ve
forgotten times without difficulty.
 
May times uneventful
return to anonymity.
Our tireless comfort
and overlooked reprieve.
