The Forgotten One

Oh, how many days to go
Until we find the forgotten one
All the things we forget
We must find

It takes time to find this forgotten one
It can be an hour or a day
A month or year
It is how much time it took to find it that counts

Each day it takes
The hope grows slimmer
To find it, the forgotten one
Many a days have gone and still I haven’t found my forgotten one

And if by chance I decide to find it again
I must realize why
I must realize how
I must realize the love it gave me

But for you 
It is a different story
Each forgotten one is different, as I said before
When you find yours 
Keep it with you 

And with each story 
There is a certain ending
Each ending is different
And with each ending

There are several things to remember
How you read 
What you found
Oddities, Moments, or Similarities

Each forgotten item 
Is a cliff hanger
You don’t realize

How it can affect you
In the short term
Or the long run
And it is hard 

To realize what 
It has been like
Without it

Don’t forget
I lost mine 
It will never come back
Don’t lose yours
