He heard a stranger

From some forgotten mirror

Of his memory

Asking does he still recall

Someone they both knew before

      Time passes and we change so much that we do not recognize ourselves, great tanka.

      I think we can all relate to this. What we must remember is we are still the same person inside, no matter what changes our bodies have seen.
