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

      So beautifully heartbreaking

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

      Just lovely

      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.

      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.

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

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

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

      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.

      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.

      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.
