  • Mood:
  • Music:

no one has forgotten you

no one has forgotten you
we've only just moved on
pushed aside the useless tears
clinging to smiles and laughter instead
no one has forgotten you
the timbre of your voice
reaching through the fog
a calm segue into dreams
no one has forgotten you
the welcome in your dark eyes
so ready to draw in life
such joy in your depths
no one has forgotten you
we've only seen too many days
bereft of your warm light
clutching other moments to treasure
but no one has forgotten you
we keep you close inside
the sliver in our hearts a reminder
how even now we still remember


It's not something I think about every single day. But this time of year, on this day, I allow myself a few moments to reflect. So there it is.
