Loves Forgotten

All loves forgotten

Buried in the mind as hazy memories 

Rarely mentioned or conjured 

A whisper and it’s lost again 

Sent fleeing by the wind

A familiar name causing a spark

But the fire never catches 

Once easily remembered, now in a moment nearly forgotten

Whatever was left time has taken

Never knowing which direction they went

Trying to remember a small feature of theirs

A grin or smile, maybe their eyes

Time has taken that too

Their face now a fading picture

Wishing for a glimpse of the good times

Only to come up blank

Not the slightest idea of why it ended

Far worse, don’t recall how it started

As the breeze passes

It takes the dimming memory 

And like that 

Back to the present

To our current lives
