By Tania

Your memory is fading.. This constant revere.. it slowly slides away…
Like a flashing neon light that’s just about
to diffuse… it struggles to flicker..
but after a while.. it just stops.
and as the night sky still shines black..
I look to the stars..
I see your face…
It looks so far away now…
Traces of your smile still grace the skyline..
And it enlightens my heart..
But only for a while..
As the wind blows.. things change..
Emotions they slip away..
like the final tear falling to its ultimate death..
I wipe it slowly from my face
Watching it slowly elapse...
Like closing the pages to
An over and done
chapter.. your
memory.. I
just let
it go..

    Well done... I can relate. Isn't odd how even the memories we don't want to let go of eventually fade?
