BEFORE I FORGET

THE PAINT ON THE WALL 
WAS A LIGHT SHADE OF GREEN 
THE COUNTER A MARBLE TILE 
THE CARPET WAS BEIGE AND HARD TO KEEP CLEAN
YOU HAD THE KINDEST SMILE

THE CABINET DOORS NEVER CLOSED ALL THE WAY 
THE FAUCET WOULD SOMETIMES DRIP 
THE CEILING WAS WHITE OR WAIT, WAS IT GREY? 
THE DETAILS BEGIN TO SLIP.

BEFORE I FORGET 
THE THINGS THAT I KNOW 
BEFORE THE SHADES ARE DRAWN
LOOK IN MY EYES DON’T LET ME GO 
AND HOPE IT LINGERS ON
IT’S NOT GONE YET...
SO LOVE ME...
BEFORE I FORGET.

IT WAS TUESDAY I THINK
YOU WERE CROSSING THE STREET
I SAW THAT YOU DROPPED YOUR PEN.
I PICKED UP THE PACE
JUST TO GIVE IT TO YOU
AND ASKED TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

BECAUSE IN THAT SECOND 
ALL THAT MATTERED
WAS THAT YOU WERE THERE WITH ME
NOW DAYS GET HAZY 
THOUGHTS ARE SCATTERED 
BUT IN YOUR EYES I SEE 
EVERYTHING I KNEW 
IT WAS ALWAYS YOU.

I REMEMBER THE SPOT 
THAT I KNELT ON ONE KNEE
YOU WERE WEARING A PURPLE DRESS, 
YOU LOOKED SO LOVELY
BUT SCARED AS CAN BE,
CRYING YOU WHISPERED YES!

BEFORE I FORGET 
THE THINGS THAT I KNOW
BEFORE THE CLOUDS ROLL IN 
SIT HERE WITH ME
ACTING AS THOUGH
I’M WHAT I’VE ALWAYS BEEN
JUST TELL ME HOW WE MET?
I’M SORRY....
I LOVE YOU
WILL YOU LOVE ME
IF I FORGET?
