Try me

*** Try me ***
Caught a too forward look
As if trying to place my face
Recover from memories attic
A name which is obscured
Place upon tip of your tongue
A name by which I am known

You stare and I see no light
No recognition glimmering in your sight
Perhaps I look a lot like him
This other person you once knew
Who has absconded from your life
Descended from your view

Did he have my nose
Or wear a winter coat on cold nights
Was he often prone to looking
Back at you and wondering
All the things he and I ponder
As we gaze back at you

Try me - please - and judge
If I or he is better
Set tasks in your memory
For me to achieve
As a hero of old I wait
To see if you see is great.
