Fading This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I can't write you down and put you on this page, no matter how hard I try
I can't find the words to explain you, to say who you really are
Time and time again I sit down to write of you, but I can never find the words

If I put you down on paper, will you lose your meaning to me, will you become less to me
The great fear is that you already have
Memories fade much too quickly, no matter how hard you try they still fade

Your smile, the way you hold me, your laugh,
The way you walk, your voice, the way you look at me
They're all fading from my mind no matter how hard I try

All that's left is the empty spot where you used to be in my memory
How could I forget you? Maybe not all of you, just the little things

Come back, rest here, fill your spot in my memory
Why couldn't we stay the way we were, why did the world have to get in the way
I can't write you down and put you on this page, no matter how hard I try

Come home to me, come play in my memory
