How To Forget - Poem by Kalyani Rajalingham (Married to Dr. Kane)

How to Forget
By Kalyani Rajalingham

The school of time preaches the art of remembering

But souls I've crossed crave the art of forgetting

And though they say time fades memories

‘Tis not an absolute truth

For time reinforces, remembers ever so much more

For that which you own, not time nor fate can rob it

No event can change it, no circumstance deny it

But it is that which fate denied that time remembers most

It is what carves some souls, and sheds blood once again

But that which was taken was not yours from the beginning

It was a momentary possession,

Be it love, sorrow or joy

Time does allow partial healing

Not by forgetting, but by replacing

‘Tis the long neglected secret to forget
