Poem: Do I Know You?

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Do I Know You" is a poem about recognizing someone when you can't place his name.

All the details seem fuzzy like you are in a dream.

You want to focus clearly & figure out if this person someone you know or just a picture you have lost?

"Can't Remember Your Name" by Len Rainey

"Do I Know You? "

I feel like
I've met you,
but my mind has misplaced your name.

The details are fuzzy,
like I'm inside a dream
just waking up.

I hope my thoughts can focus
to that place in time
and tell me if I know you
or if you're just a picture
I have lost.

have-i-met-you

I've learned that people will forget

WHAT YOU SAID,

people will forget

WHAT YOU DID,

but people will never forget how you

MADE THEM FEEL.

— Maya Angelou
