    Wow! So many possibilities… is he consciously trying to remember some things? are they disappearing out of reach? is he locking them away and not sharing them? 'prioritizing his life? thank you for sharing…

    . . . and he'll never tell.
    but i remember his thoughts
    i remember his love.
    'tis a secret–
    a memory
    we share.

    thanks for the memories, Victor
    you done good.
