I SHALL REMEMBER, by GLENNYS RIVOLA
First Line: The rain has come and washed away the trace
Last Line: But II shall remember when I'm dead!
Subject(s): Memory; Nature; Past; Relationships
The rain has come and washed away the trace,
The last faint trace our hesitant footsteps left
Where white anemones starred grasses, cleft
By curling nameless tendrils, in a place
So near the river that the whispered sound
Of little waves on shoreline was its deep
And almost soundless crooning for the sleep
And formless, happy dreams that wrapped us around.
The grass no more lies flattened where you lay
And watched the wheeling swallows skim the wet
And eddying surface, while you gently said
Old wisdom for my ears. That happy day
Is long ago. The grasses can forget
But II shall remember when I'm dead!
