Vol 6: Iss 2, Poetry

Who is he now? 
A brilliant scientist 
A handsome kind man, warm eyes and gray curly hair 
Charming and worldly
We traveled many places
He had all the answers
He answered questions no one else could, for the world

Does he still have answers?
He knows many 
About science
About when he was a little boy
About his wife
He’s still quick with clever quip

Does he remember yesterday?
He remembers my kids
He remembers what I do
He remembers what I like
He remembers me
He remembers my giggle, just like when I was a little girl

How do I talk to him?
What do I talk about?
He is so happy
He loves to see me
Maybe it does not matter what we talk about
