Never Forget

She can't quite picture his lips The sincerity in his smile The scar through his right eyebrow The dark hair that fell into his eyes when he looked down The hands that held her The comfort in the sound of him breathing next to her The voice that steadied her These things she can no longer picture And this haunts her And everyday gets harder He doesn't enter her dreams as often Though it still hurts Like a winter chill that freezes all your thoughts to one person The agony under her ribs near bursting The feeling of their love making Remembered is the way it felt when they entangled their fingers The warmth of his kisses The certainty of love Saying this must be it She's forgotten The exact shade of his eyes The crease of his brow The curve of his back She writes his name on her hand every morning Although the dementia is eating away at her brain She won't forget his name She'll never forget his name
