Forget-Me-Not2 mins 178 2 mins 178
The rain by then had ceased to fall
The tendrils of the vines crawled over the wall
The wind blew and the leaves shed
All swathed in hues of orange and red
The air was like cider and the sky so blue
Oh, but was it an untimely end for me and you?
Fall has a beautiful finality, isn’t it?
It’s like the last moments of a day, still sunlit
Just like every day but all at once
The past’s lingering essence with the chill of the coming winter months
Inside I was lying down and there was a heavy lull in the air
The silence screamed and held me in a snare
My voice couldn’t be heard above the din
Yet my mind wandered tame but free, like Huginn and Muninn
And I saw you standing with your eyes agleam
I was caught in a trance, between a memory and a dream
But I didn’t know if you knew me
Oh, had you forgotten all that was “we”?
Were we now like scattered leaves of a tree?
To blow away forever, or destined to meet?
First I saw you caught in a tempest
Then again, walking through a forest
Then again along the seashore
And yet again through a lush green meadow
All the places together we had been
Yet now with you, I was nowhere to be seen
Oh didn’t you feel me through the breeze?
Didn’t you hear my words rustling through the trees?
Didn’t the waves whisper my name?
And our love to the skies, did the storm not proclaim?
But don’t you worry now my love, at my behest
Could you just pick for me some forget-me-not?
Oh please for me could you drive your quill?
Oh please, could you keep the forget-me-not on your windowsill?
