Poetry Forever Moments by Jenne Brown April 30, 2017 Forever moments I once believed Would always nurture my memory, Now are pieces broken in time, Whose design I try to reassign For the memories of my mind With reality no longer align. Lovers and friends so treasured Have not weathered The trials and strife On the open sea of life Forever moments that have come and gone Forever moments you weren’t what I thought you’d be Forever moments the love is gone Forever moments are still here with me So many moments I thought we’d remember together Forever But you’ve left behind Nothing more than memories of the mind How could we be so close Share so much And have nothing left? But pictures of the soul Don’t you know you’ve left a hole Inside of me? Silly remembrances That should bear no weight Still plague my heart For the part That’s lost So many precious yesterdays remain As bewildered witnesses fumbling to explain How the landscape we built Has crumbled and turned to wilt. If only I knew how to let go All the mind’s mementos, Knew how to dissect the pain So that the tenderness remained. But the hurts I once thought would break me Have instead strengthened and shaped me. And sorrow is shallow found In tomorrow’s hallowed ground.
