The minutes, the seconds continue to mount-
Into hours, weeks, I can’t count.
Each precious moment, a memory is stored-
Of a person, a thing, so special, so fully adored.
How is it I see the space isn’t there?
To stare at all memories that I want to share.
I’ve arranged and shaped, so everything fit.
Memories of candles, I’ve kept them all lit.
Days, weeks, months have turned into years.
Some laughters have turned to tears!
How can I forget? You’re always in my memory.
I must find a place, last place that you were dear to me.
Now I have discarded here, took some from there-
To wipe out any is so hard to bear.
But I must must have the space-
To store another memory that I can’t erase.
There! See! I’ve pushed and squeezed till it is in place.
I’v lastly made room to remember your face.
The face! The face is before me, but ah, what a shame-
That I can see your face, but forgotten your name!! …
