Remembrance

Do you remember

That one time,
When life meant less than anything,
Our hearts falling further and further away,

From any chance of healing

A pain we couldn’t numb,
A plague created by a single lie

A whisper that ate at our well-being,
Do you remember that?
Cause I don’t

Do you remember

That one day,
When there wasn’t a person in the world we could trust,
Our conscience poised as the closest thing,

As unstable as it was

As confused as it is,
Our backs screamed in pain as Caesars’ did

Though we were so far from March, the stabs still hurt,
Do you remember that?
Cause I don’t

Do you remember

All those times,
When we didn’t mind suffocating
We laughed so damn hard,
When we wore smiles so huge

We could place a shadow over Rhode Island,
When the world was ours, and it was beautiful

It was enough to last forever, as we lived life away

Only to meet the moon at the end of a beautiful day,
When life was… good,
Do you remember?

I hope you remember,

I pray you remember,

May you always remember,

Cause I will never forget
