Be yourself; because those who care don't matter and those who matter don't care. :)

--Dr. Seuss


Do you remember:
All our little jokes,
The feeling of my hand in yours,
Our first phone call,
My birthday,
All the pain you put me through?

I remember:
The sound of your voice over the phone,
Every quirky smile,
The way you couldn’t say I love you enough,
Always wanting just one more minute,
All the pain you put me through.

Now you’re gone.

Would you forget:
Our first kiss,
My weird sense of humor,
Walking in the park with me,
The notes you used to draw for me,
All the pain you put me through?

I will forget:
All our little jokes,
The feeling of your hand in mine,
Our first phone call,
Your birthday,
The sound of your voice over the phone,
Every quirky smile,
The way you couldn’t say I love you enough,
Always wanting just one more minute,
Our first kiss,
Your weird sense of humor,
Walking in the park with you,
The notes you used to draw for me,
And all the pain you put me through.

I enjoyed reading this and it flowed really nicely. :) I like how you re-wrote everything you mentioned throughout the poem at the end and claimed that those were all the thing you would forget. :) Great job. :)

Favorite Quote:
"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"

This is a little bland to read, because it just seems like a list the whole time. Not a bad idea in general, but the way you presented it made it dull. I think that if you change the ending a little it would be better.
