A Walk in Forever

Take the sun and put it into your pocket
Run away with the fear
Because I can no longer control
What’s real anymore
Zero below and my heart is frosted over
Remembering you is like
Running in a golden flower field
The center of a Tootsie Pop
Remembering you is
A walk in forever
I remember you…
In the kitchen
We bake a cake
You laugh at me when I mess up the batter
I laugh at you when you spill it on yourself
I lick it off your arm laughing
You rub more batter on yourself so maybe I will do it again
You were always so cute
Remembering you is like
Running in a golden flower field
The center of a Tootsie Pop
Ice cream when it is 101 degrees
Remembering you is
A walk in forever
I remember you
Hand in hand
Feet on wet pavement
Soaking wet because the rain is falling on our heads
I see the river, not far from where we are
I rush toward it, you follow
Giving you a daring smile I kick off my shoes and jump in, so do you
The moon shines over head, and we are swimming fully clothed
Remembering you is like
Running in a golden flower field
The center of a Tootsie Pop
Ice cream when it is 101 degrees
I remember you…
The next chapter in great novel
Remembering you is
A walk in forever
I remember you
It was late, I was sorry
I didn’t mean for you to worry
But you did, because you loved me
My car was a wreck, stupid ice
Headlights in the distance, you were there
Throwing yourself out of your car, you came to calm me
Remembering you is like
Running in a golden flower field
The center of a Tootsie Pop
Ice cream when it is 101 degrees
I remember you
The next chapter in great novel
When a country station plays a happy love song
Remembering you is
A walk in forever
I remember you
My phone rings
Smiling because I see your name on the ID
But it wasn’t you it was the voice of your roommate
Said you passed out and that he took you to the ER
When I got there, your family was there, somber like a broken violin
They told me the news
I became crimson ashes
I rushed into your room, saw you ever so pale, yet so beautiful
Tubes running through you veins
The worst had come
You only had a few weeks
I watched you fade
I watched you bleed, vomit, and cry in agony
You always smiled, telling me you were fine
I knew the truth
You weren’t fine
I remember you…
Remembering you is like
Running in a golden flower field
The center of a Tootsie Pop
Ice cream when it is 101 degrees
I remember you..
The next chapter in great novel
When a country station plays a happy love song
Sand between your toes
Remembering you is
A walk in forever
I remember you
Squeezed my hand with the weakest strength
Then the life of your touch was gone
Bittersweet
you were someplace pain couldn’t reach you, sweet
I was some place were pain couldn’t leave me, bitter
Forgetting you is
A cold shower, then burning hot water
Long black nights
Forgetting you is
Curling up in a ball, clutching your blanket tight
Dark rings around your eyes, screaming in horror,
shaking over a picture, restless sleep, tasteless food,
wordless words, empty thoughts
I remember you…
O h, God, how I remember you
