Lest We Forget

By Lynn White

Lest We Forget

We think you can see us,
you know who we are
behind our masks
Not everything is hidden.
We are not hidden.
We are out
in the open
in plain sight
even if masked.
So join us for a snack,
a glass of wine,
a coffee.


Take a sip with us
lest we forget
what to do
when we go outside.
Step back in time
one taste at a time,
one sip at a time.
the first time
is always challenging
and won't ever be forgotten.


As we will remember
the ones behind the masks
and the ones in hiding,
the ones we know are there
but cannot see.
We know who you are.
No one is forgotten.
Nothing is forgotten.
That's our promise
one sip at a time.
