Remember - Poem by Charlotte Ballard

Remember how it felt
To cry over a lost pet?
More precious
Than gold were
Those bright eyes
Now dimmed or gone.

Remember how it felt
To sit close to someone
New, who might like
You back, you think
You hope – maybe, maybe so.
And then he didn’t-
Going out with your
Best friend Sue.

Remember what it was like
To go into the ocean for the
First time?
Cold rolling waves
Knocking you down,
Laughing as it does.

That is what it was like
When you walked away
From me.
