That lost, Must Be Found

That moment we forgot what we did saw.
This no doubt our memory have failed us,
A signal that the time will not be thaw,
That moment we forgot.

When all throbbing has come and nestled, thus
The thing we saw reappears as its raw,
Then nothing can stop that call behind us.

Not lost memories are what we keep as law
The forgotten will haunt back as pulse
Highest shade, most lightening will tour and saw
That moment we forgot.


Note: Form of poetry used in the piece is a 'Roundel' form of poetry.

    I scrolled down and saw what you were saying in your explanation box. That made me understand better your great message in this poem. What a wonderful thought that it can be restored.

    Good morning Abdulhafeez, this is a deep poem. flows wonderfully with a sad reminder. ~~ about my blog.... Nigeria's national flower is Costus Spectabilis: (Related to the Crane Flower). It is incorrectly depicted as being red (instead of yellow) on the coat of arms of Nigeria. Here is the link to my blog where I share this info: https://www.facebook.com/angelwingsa. hope you can write about the flower. I will set out the contest, next week. always~ Linda

    I'm talking about what happen when memories are lost due to aging and the power of our ressurection as the factor to the recovery of those memories. Either good or bad life we lived in this world. There (i.e afterlife), the paradise (our good or bad deed) must reappear before us on d.day ~A.O

    HI Abdulhafeez, we really need strength of memory so that we do not forget the meaningful things in life. Thanks for the reminder, David
