Remembering Hurts Less Than ForgettingA Poem by Delicate Grace
I didn't intend for this poem to be about a friend, but I guess his death was on my mind more than I knew when I wrote it... coming up on two years now.
The whispered secrets of a love that’s lost
Slowly strangled until they are rotten
Tragically buried beneath mourning frost
Forevermore lingering, forgotten
That phantom’s promise rings loud in my ear
Torturing me with his trembling voice
It is the remembrance that I’ll fear
When knowing that he did not have that chance
Full of sorrow, an angel will then cry
For never again will his face be seen
We’ll say goodbye with a heartbroken sigh
And the makes life’s light lose some of its sheen
Now the nightingale’s song will always weep
At the site where his soul eternally sleeps
