I don't remember...

Poet - Ash L Bennett
 · Feb 9, 2011


I don't remember, any more, 
The exact shape of your hands
As I held them in mine, 
Caressed them, 
Memorized the length of your fingers,
The depth of your calluses. 

I don't remember, any more,
Exactly your height, how much
Taller than me
You were, where
My head rested on your chest
When you held me tightly close.

I don't remember, any more, 
Your scent,
Your breath,
Or the beat of your heart.

I don't remember, any more, 
The sound of your voice, calling 
My name as though
It were a song 
Within itself, a precious treasure 
You valued with all your being. 

And I don't remember, any more, 
The color of your eyes, the shape
Of your lips, 
Only...
How your eyes crinkled at the corners
And my laugh, as you told me, 

"I love you."
