My Heart Remembers You

An Angel Falls - Gabriel Yared

9/11/13

The memories fade all on their own
and I wander here feeling alone
some parts of me have turned to stone
still my heart remembers you

I walk the path laid before me
what's up ahead, I still can't see
I'm not sure where I want to be
but my heart remembers you

I got rid of all your worldly things
sadness is all they had to bring
thoughts of you will always sting
still my heart remembers you

I completely changed my life
from those days I was your wife
to live in peace and avoid strife
but my heart remembers you

I close my eyes still I can't see
our past and all our memories
sometimes I think it shouldn't be
still my heart remembers you

I still have so much life to go
love to give and ways to grow
no one will live in your shadow
but my heart remembers you

I am grateful for our time
and should I lose my mind
I am sure that I will find
that my heart remembers you

Your poem depicts the longing and sadness of many 9/11 survivors. The image and the song compliment the poem perfectly. The song is very haunting, igniting a visual of all those who lost their lives, floating up like angels. Good job. Voted up and beautiful.

Nice to meet you Janshares. I think people who have felt the depth of certain feelings can really relate to each other even if the situations they faced are very different. I am grateful that the work has the potential to reach 9/11 survivors but I would be lying if I said it was deliberate. I love when my work translates itself to someone else without my intent. Happy to meet you.

Goodmorning Frank! :) All these different words you have used to describe me and my work thru our time knowing each other makes me wonder who or how I am in your minds eye. That I care to be curious says that you are a dear friend.

Maybe 9/11 widows but it seems the day this was made on was coincidental.

Purely coincidence. I saw the picture and it is his face. Then the words just came... as with most of my writing, completely unplanned.

The woman looks like you, Legacy. At least from the pictures I've seen of you that you've posted here.

Daniel, I had the same thought. I cut off all the hair to donate it, so I look a little different now but its eerie and it messes with my head. I don't even know who the artist is. Makes me wonder if stories reveal themselves without us. How can one explain that someone unknown person would draw something from a story that I have lived. I mean the characters are even right. The wings are on him and not on me. Of all the faces in the world to get these two... Its a statistical anomaly.

I like that you can put a face to the words you read from me.

It grows back. I had a friend who did the same with her hair.

I heard Eastern Orthodox bishops don't cut their hair though.

So beautifully heartbreaking

True love never dies ...sometimes it's forced to change and this was a potent expression of that

Just lovely
