If you remembered everything
You would weep.
There is the time I pulled you from
Your burdensome cross
Then held you in my arms and let you
Rest in my dark, quiet heart until
You were reborn.
You had the strength of a world
And all was forgiven;
We began anew.
Then I transgressed.
You waited too long in the car.
Remembering only my gun at your head
Murdering you with time.
Yet I know you were already
Close to remembering everything.
