The Memory

So many memories that cannot be expressed
Will forever stay inside forever
And never stride past my lips.
I wish to keep these forever if possible,
Because I don't want to forget
The most peaceful times of my life.
And yes I will grow and there will be
Many more peaceful times,
But these memories will always be special.
Special to me and maybe to you.
For you may have forgotten the once
So important memories,
But they are engraved in my mind
For the time being.
But one by one these few memories
Just continue to slip away from my grasp.

The warmth of his now gone embrace,
His saddened eyes scanning my face,
The memory of our fingers interlaced.
Now gone.

Spoken aloud, these memories could
Cause so much havoc in my everyday life.
One word of these escaping my lips
And my current world will no longer remain sane.
So many questions would errupt from everyone.
Burdening me down so where I can't handle it.
But then I would just go back
To the very few memories I have left.
And at times I really want them to go away
And just let me be at peace in a world
I most recently created.
And one by one these few memories
Just continue to slip away from my grasp.

His hands wiping away my tears,
His smile slaughtering my fears,
The memory of him always being near.
Now gone.

I wish to control these memories
Instead of them controling me.
Controling my mood for that very day,
And controling what I say or feel.
But it doesn't work that way because
They can come in and out whever they feel
Like I would need to remember some good times although
They usually lead back to more bad memories.
I know these memories will eventually be gone,
But one I would really love to keep with me
The memory of my last sighting of your face.
But one by one these few memories
Just continue to slip away from my grasp.

His voice powerful and strong,
Him letting me know I belong,
The memory of him helping me along.
Now gone.

I remember you hiding it from me,
Acting like you were not upset.
But you have forgotten that I can see
Right through your eyes heart and soul.
So eventually the truth came out and we
Did not have enough time to say good bye.
You just left without much warning and I was

His smile fading into the distance,
My legs staying still from my resistance,
[to not run after you]
The memory of the tear-filled nights existence,
Now gone.
