Remember (a poem)

In remembrance of 9-11, for everything. For those who lost loved ones and those who we will always remember. I have nothing to say, because there is nothing to say. I remember. I feel. It hurts. You remember. You feel. It hurts.

I remember, because I cannot forget.
I don't know that I will forget.
I don't know that I want to.
Sometimes I think I want to.
Because it hurts so much.
Then I think I don't.
Because it hurts so much.
Life like a shadow
When the sun is smiling for
A minute
But the light lasts
Remember for what was lost
Remember for what we have
Living in their memory
Learning from what they gave
Learning from who they were
Learning from what they left
Remember because it matters
Remember because they matter
Memories are what I have
Memories are what I'll keep
I'll never stop making them
I'll never stop sharing them
I will always let them be
A special part of me
