Remember


Remember the day that we first met?
Remember the rain? We were soaking wet.
Remember the cafe? Cosy and quiet.
Remember?

Remember the glorious summer days?
Remember the wonderful, blissful haze?
Remember our funny little ways?
Remember?

Remember giving me that red rose?
Remember writing me verse and prose?
Remember kissing the end of my nose?
Remember?

Remember that day in the shopping queue?
Remember that beautiful girl, named Sue?
I watched you both and I just knew,
Remember?

Remember saying 'everything is fine'?
Remember your attempts to wine and dine?
Remember claiming you'd always be mine?
Remember?

Remember how the good times flew?
Remember moving on to pastures new?
Remember thinking I hadn't a clue?
Until the day that I left you.
Remember?

    I love how this one builds and builds to a dramatic twist in the tail. It's really clever how you set the reader up, then turn it round. Fantastic and poignant. (Report) Reply

    Thank you for your comments Lesley. This poem was a homework piece for a writing workshop i used to attend. We were given the pattern but the words were 'Love is....' I thought listening to a dozen 'Love is...' poems could become monotonous so played around with it and decided on the word 'Remember' instead.
    I also broke the rules in the latter couple of stanzas to build the tension ie left out 2 of the 'Remember' s and added a line in the last verse. Why not have a go yourself? x (Report) Reply

    This is one of my favourite poems. I like the idea of lost love and having the intuition when something is not right even though being told the opposite. You put those ideas across very effectively. (Report) Reply
