In Your Memory - Poem by Pascal Umekwe

Hold me in your memories before you hold me in your arms
For your arms long and strong may be too short
Your body smooth and soft and silky
From mine may be peeled apart by a lacerating distance
Clawed away coldly by some cruel duty
So hold me in your memories before you hold me in your hands
For in your memories
I am always yours
Always sure of your presence
Even when other loyalties bark at you
When undertakings shake your hold on your surest supports
Run into the doors of memories that hold me
Without a polite knock or courteous delay
Just run in and be with me
In the events we shared, on the table where we split fresh laughters
Share with me the cup where our emotions boiled into tears
Remember I hold this outpost like a lone flag
My arms stretched, frozen, faithfully spread
And my heart afire with warm memories
