This work has reached the exceptional level
free-style poem
"Nostalgia" by Connie Frazier

I find myself thinking lately
of all of the moments
that were the last

the last visit with an elderly relative
the last bedtime story with a young one

the last trek up the mountain trail
the last brilliant bonfire under a starry sky

the last covert affaire de coeur
the last intimate conversation with you

the last time I had hope for the future
the last time you looked at me with respect

how could I have known
and yet, now I regret

not appreciating the sweetness of the moments
not creating more of the moments I love best
thinking there will always be a next
