Does He Remember

Does he remember

The smiles

He once brought to my face?

 

Does he remember

The way

Our hearts would race?

 

Does he remember

The sparks

That once flew so freely?

 

Does he remember

The day

That he'd first seen me?

 

Does he remember

The laughter

We shared?

What a musical sound.

 

Does he remember

My once lost heart

That he had found?

 

Does he remember

My fears and pain

Hidden deep inside?

 

Does he remember

The scars

Of the millions of tears

That  had cried?

 

Does he remember

What was on my mind?

 

Does he remember

The hidden truth

When I'd say

That I was fine?

 

Does he remember

All the things

We never said,

But wished we did?

 

Does he remember

The guard I kept

Or feelings I kept hid?

 

Does he remember

How I felt

Or what he meant to me?

 

Does he remember

How hard I tried

Through life's insanity?

 

Does he know

I'd wished each night

That he'd wanted me to stay?

 

Does he know

How much it hurt

For him to let me go away?

 

Does he know

I'd wished for him

To say, 'Please don't actually go.' ?

 

Does he know the pain I felt

All that time alone?

 

Does he remember

How much I cared

Or how much it'd hurt me

To see him go?

 

Does he remember at all?

Does he know?
