the way images in your mind can haunt you
the way memories can rip into your heart and
attach to your soul.
the notion of never forgetting
of always having something bring it back,
make you go back in time,
to that place,
The oath of remembering—
it rests in those laughs we shared, those times we had, those moments that remain vivid in my mind.
I meant it;
I hope you meant it too.
