I Remember Not

Updated on May 10, 2013

I remember not

these stones, upon which I stand,

though they were here

when once we did tread.


I remember not

this bench, upon which I rest,

though it was here

in the life we once lead.


I remember not

these hands, with which I write,

though I once wore them

when I struck Christ and he bled.

I remember not

these thoughts, upon which I dwell,

though once I did think them

in my anguish and your dread.


I remember not

this heart, that now fails me,

but it remembers you, my love

though my thoughts have now fled.

      Thank you theatre girl. This was a piece for a special person I shared almost thirty wonderful years with. I'm glad you enjoyed it and welcome to my hubs.
