I Have Forgotten

I Have Forgotten

1 min 310 1 min 310

I have forgotten.

Forgotten the way the sunlight seemed

Forgotten the way the sunlight seemed magical.

Forgotten the time nature was extravagant.

Forgotten when life itself had another definition


I would sit at the edge of the water,

Watch the sun as it fell to meet the horizon.

I would watch the red swirl into the clouds.

I would wait for the purple to merge into the picture.

And I would sit there every day and try to define that beauty...

But then I didn’t…


I felt the water, I left the sky.

I stopped believing it was special and turned my back.

But I didn’t realize,

Nothing is special.

It's only so if you believe it to be.

So, take that cold hard heart and put it in your palm.

Let people put their own colour in your life.

And soon enough, you’ll have the brightest heart alive.


Bring back the musty old paper,

Gently turn the page.

It’ll feel as light as a feather.

So, treat it like water or it’ll crumble like ashes.

See the beauty. Beauty in rust, beauty in dust, beauty in moss,

Beauty in wrinkles, beauty in faded jeans, beauty in old leather,

Beauty in memories and I’ll promise you.

You’ll see the happiness in life.
