Unforgettable Forgotten

Talk to her

there is no response

she can't hear you anymore

show her pictures

in her eye a tear appears

though looking closely you notice she can't see you

Hold her hand

brush her hair

she doesn't feel your touch

You know this, but hold her close anyway

a smile appears

she falls asleep

dreaming of how things used to be

It's the old familiarity of your nearness that reminds her senses

she's forgotten where she left her heart

but it will always recognize her

when it welcomes her home to peace in your arms
