I Won’t Forget


getting ready for jumping on the trampoline,
jumping fast, jumping high, when she died,
I lost my life, jumping fast, jumping high, she
is dead, she is dead, jumping fast, jumping
high, I will not accept, jumping fast, jumping
high, I won’t forget, jumping fast, jumping
high, she shall be with me, jumping fast,
jumping high, she’ll live in my heart, jumping
fast, jumping high, until I myself die, jumping
fast, jumping high, falling, falling, falling,
jumping fast, jumping high, falling

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
