Can I Forget You? - Poem by Heather Burns

When I can no longer
depend on my muse
to guide heart and hand.


Pen and paper lying
beside me, not a word
forth coming.


Paper turning yellow
with age, my eyes close
for the last time, I


breathe my final breath
can I forget you?

    Is there anything other than love that exists, if so, the memories of a beloved are immortal. A nice lovely poem. (Report) Reply

    Love is like that only, once you're settled with that love, it's a constant possession for you. Whatever happens after that you can't be without that love.... beautiful (Report) Reply
