Remember

Do you know who I am?
I am the one who remembers
I do not forget
Will not forget
Can not forget.
I remember for you.
I am there,
Back there to remind you
To show you how it was
To let you feel once more
The joy, the hurt
The simple things that
Made you smile.

The sound of leaves scratchin'
Along the ground
Pushed by the wind
On an autumn day

That first kiss
Stolen so quickly
Soft and sweet
Remembered by me
Reminded to you.

The smell of supper
Cookin' in the house
While you played outside
Waitin' to hear a call
"Dinner, come on in"

The touch of your hand
On theirs
Reaching, feeling, hoping
Finding reassurance
Feeling a quickening
As finger intertwine.

Do you know who I am?
I remember for you.
