Memories Away

I carry not your memory before me
because I have simply grown;
the woman in me would not
forgive the losses known.

But a date will ever linger
like a clean impression from
a favorite ring on my finger
too, too long left on.

Analyze it or the feelings I will not,
for the date will come, year in, year out
like a bee’s drone or a summer day
and your memory is put away.

But that date will ever linger
like a clean impression from
a favorite ring on my finger
too, too long left on.

Scourge my memories I would
to lock recall of that love out,
and surely, surely if I could
that silent voice would cease to shout.

But that date of marriage will ever linger
like a clean impression from a favorite ring
on my finger, too, too long left on;
the ring is gone, the impression remains on.

Lovely and sad.

I think your growth is partially chronicalled on the blue pages of PiP.  You are a beautiful woman who shares so much in your writing.

I have missed you.
