This poem is beautiful. It highlights something that no human can escape: the aging process. The desire to remember shows that the spirit is willing while the body is failing.

@StandingBear One ages, yet the spirit stays young, a prisoner of a clay vessel waiting the time of reunion.  A time when all is remembered and the looking glass refection is clear.  No earthly thing remains the same but the essense that animates never changes; it is. LPF, Olan

It's said that memory loss is a huge problem on the rise, even amongst younger generations. Great descriptive writing, staging slow loss of one's faculties which were stronger, sharper, and brighter at an earlier time in life.

@Rhymer2 All it seems I replied to myself, lol, clicked in the wrong place.  My reply was that memories fleet with the years but return with a smell or a prod but what counts are our reactions to the choices life presents us in the present. LPF, Olan
