I didn’t remember what I told you last
I just knew it wasn’t pretty
But then you died and somehow I
Remember everything completely
 
And the words I should have said
I remember them exactly
Never thought such simple words
When unspoken could hurt so deeply
 
And at times the pain’s forgotten
Then I encounter some silly funny thing
That reminds me of the jokes you’ve made
And I remember everything 

A hand held
A shy gaze
A kiss

A love lost
A memory
You miss

Midnight
You lie awake
And reminisce

For all
You have left
Is a wish

To return to
That long-forgotten
Bliss
