Agatha – 3 – “Memoir”

Posted in Agatha at 9:51 pm by Matt

I remember…
Wedding day.
The smell of the flowers.
The smiling faces.
The dress in the attic,
Kept all these years.

I remember…
Nights on the lake.
Fires on the shore.
The child in my womb.
Her first cry,
Swaddled in my arms.

I remember…
His last words.
“I’ll be home late, don’t wait up.”
Out the door, never to return.
Swallowed by the night,
Killed by what he loved.

I remember…
…I will never forget.

All that I have is memory.
What is there left when this fades away?
All that I hold so dear to me,
Slipping away to dream and eclipse.
