Forget Me Not - Poem by Rene' Bennett

I cried a tear
or two today
while I packed
your things away.
I carefully placed
each piece in a box
as not to break
forget me nots.
Pictures we took
memories we made
side by side
together they laid.
I stood there
for a minute or two
gently whispered
'I love you.'
Then I placed the lid
on the box
as I promised
to forget you not.
