Memories - Poem by Hermione Femalton

Do you recall my name?
And the place where we met?
Do you recall that night?
With the swelter and the sweat.

Do you recall the mem'ries
And the thoughts we turned away?
Do you recall the fear as we
were hiding from the day?

Do you remember what you said
As you held me in your arms?
You told me what you thought
About the Bible and the Psalms.

And you told me of the pain
That you were hiding from them all.
And in that night I knew
That you'd catch me should i fall.

But the night, it wouldn't last,
And the morning woke the noose
That we held around our necks,
never cutting loose.

And the cross we had to bear;
We shared ours for a night.
but the truth, it came again,
And we had no strength to fight.

And so we said good-bye,
And stumbled back alone.
But if I'd never met you;
I never would have known.

And so I'm glad I knew you,
And I'm glad that you left.
But I will miss your voice,
And the hands that were so deft.

I hope you know I still,
Think of that night we shared.
And as I face the lonly world;
I'm a little bit less scared.
