"Will You Remember Me"
In your silent moments of repose, long after life has stripped you of your youth, will you remember me.
In your optimistic and exhuberant moments of passion in your life, will you remember me.
When you feel nostalgic and lonely for the silence in your heart, will you remember us.
We all love passionately in our youth and sometimes worship banality and deceit with sheer abandon and resolve.
Within the haunting spectre of of love's reality, we unknowingly mourn the hearts we choose to abandon, with utter disregard for the pain that we will brand upon their countenance, and in a karmic act, us as well.
Sometimes love's wicked remembrance leaves our side swiftly, hurriedly, like adolescent winter leaves careening down from the verdant shelter of their birth.
They leave, like our hearts, pursuing an unknown fate and abandoning that which only wished to nurture and protect us,
only asking in return for a warm embrace and phrase, nothing more.
In return, nothing more is what we gain in our untiring pursuit of that elusive, adolescent rainbow. which is nothing but the reflection of of our brilliant lies within the mirror of our soul.
The light I thought I was pursuing, was the brilliant light that was created within us by the nurturing of your words.
The burning inner glow that sprang from the true love that emanated from your being, served to brighten those scattered thoughts which were my dreams that I so foolishly thought were my creation.
Some are blessed that their wishes and prayers are not granted and thus are spared the pain of love's departure, which brings about the beginning of the journey.
I will continue on my nomadic quest to somehow find you again,
but I already know, deep within me, that your heart and love as I knew them are now forever gone.
Gone, never to return again, like my question to your dreams, will you remember me.
You might not remember me, you might not remember us, but I for certain, will mourn your loss with every minute that transpires.
I will remember you whenever I see a golden butterfly caress the myriads of petals under her fervent care,
and rejoice in the joy,
the unconditional surrender of love you chose to bestow on me.
Your unconditional surrender to my heart that is now my haunted soul, that I,
forged upon my earthly path.
