Don’t Forget to Remind Me

Updated on November 26, 2016

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

Remind me of the love,

that I once knew.

So very long ago,

when my world -

was quite new.

Remind me of the love,

that I lost along the way,

that seemed so fine -

but was forgotten one day.

Remind me,

of why our love -

melted like the winter snow.

So when the spring comes again,

looking for a new love,

I’ll know,

not to believe in magical things anymore.

Remind me,

why you and I can never be -

Where is the love,

that you and I once had?

They say that true love never dies,

guess that was not what we had.

Remind me,

of the secrets we once shared -

Tell me was that love real?

Remind me,

of where the laughter went -

Why did the silence come?

Tell me if you still care for me,

tell me if love can begin again

or have we lost the ties,

that once bound us together.

Lost that special feeling -

that made us one.

Remind me,

why I never saw you again,

Was it because my eyes

lost that starry glow?

Remind me,

of the time that was so special,

so that I can remember and smile

and when I go to bed tonight,

I can dream of a love,

that once was so very special

and so very real -

in another place and time.

        This is amazing, Rasma. There comes a time when the circumstances that caused the love to fade and the relationship break finally reach the recesses of our minds, allowing the good memories to thrive front and center.

        Beautiful piece!
