You forgot

Your eroding soul was night;
I held your hand, told you it'll be alright
I raised your hopes but now you forgot,
You remember me not!

Life vexed, tried and pained you,
Your skin grew dry and pale
They cracked brains to compose your memorial tale;
But I loved you and gave you strength
Now you forgot that day!

I assembled scattered fragments of your spirit
With my loving breath I baptized you;
Now you forgot how you looked through my eyes and cried...
How I fought for you when you nearly died.

And now when heart aching memories are past,
And you gained strength at last
You give me the negation of what I hoped for!
