Forgetting - Poem by Yolanda Aderele

I'm starting to forget things about you
like the sound of your voice and the way you use to look at me
I struggle to remember a joke that you told
or what your favorite anything was
so long ago you left me and so many moments in between
I shudder at the thought of what it really means

I don't want to forget you like you were never there
because the complete opposite is true you were once
my everything
please forgive me for forgetting the things
I never thought I would
I'll try with all my might to remember things like:
your love, your smell, your hug, the way you waved your hand
these other things I'll hold on to it if I can
I'll always love you though- I promise
