Unforgotten

Unforgotten

i thought i saw you, from a distance amidst the crowd
i could run to you and make you remember, all that we were
all that we probably never will,
nahh, it might never actually be you
i see you everywhere, yes everywhere
unforgotten, that’s what you are to me

i see you in the morning sky, as i give thanks for a new life
a new beginning, as every ray of sunshine, is your smile
your smile, how they made me giggle secretly
in my silence
how they made me nervous, in an oh, so silly manner
‘cos you to me is the sunshine
unforgotten, that’s what you are

i see you in every book, in every novel, in every poetry i read
for each page, each verse, each syllable, and each rhythm and rhyme
is your strong, regular, repeated pattern of speech
i do love to listen to over and over
‘cos you to me, is a lovely melody
unforgotten, that’s what you are

i see you in every little miracle there is
when a child begs for a piece of bread and she receives a bag full of food
when a teenage boy helps an elderly woman cross the street
‘cos you to me, is a miracle in itself
unforgotten, that’s what you are

i see you in the silence of the night where the world is asleep
the universe is at a halt, where there is complete
solitude
where there is total peace as the midnight moon appears over a dark starry sky
‘cos you to me is solitude
unforgotten, that’s what you are

i see you even in the sanctity of my dream
where the world is mine
and yours to live
where i can be yours and you can be mine
where “happily- ever – after” happens
where true love reigns
‘cos you to me is my “dreams do come true”
unforgotten, that’s what you are

baby, trust me when i say,
since i know of your love i have never
lived a day without thinking of you
unforgotten, that’s what you are

  1. Powerfully emotional, and beautifully expressed … I was especially touched by this lovely stanza

    “i see you in every book, in every novel, in every poetry i read
    for each page, each verse, each syllable, and each rhythm and rhyme
    is your strong, regular, repeated pattern of speech
    i do love to listen to over and over
    โ€˜cos you to me, is a lovely melody
    unforgotten, thatโ€™s what you are”

  2. This speaks of a love that is and remains despite a distance… Unforgotten is how many of us would like to be – forever young and carefree. How true it is when a love impacts us in a positive way and opens our eyes to the presence of that love in every facet of life! Bravo!!!
