How

Written by: Karlin K. Jensen

How can I forget you,
your smile, your kind words?
How can I stop dreaming,
stop hoping and wishing?
Your voice, your eyes, your hands
always present, stirring memories,
each sweet thing said in my mind
like a broken love song.
Memories burning, scalding
and springing suddenly, violently.
So many rotting promises
and half lost wishes
and yet...
I can't let go.
