That's Just the Way I Remember You


So much time has gone by. Do you know I still cry?
I can talk to myself, but I can't tell you why.
I need to see you in my memory,
feel you in my night. That's just the way I remember you.

The sound of your footsteps as you walked through my door,
I can hear how you breathed like when I heard you before.
I need to take it really slow, never let my memory go.
That's just the way I remember you.

I could skip to the chase but I could never erase
all the little things that tug at my heartstrings.
I could tell you my dreams but I could never hide
all the things I feel that tug at my heartstrings inside..
That's just the way I remember you.

You can't answer the whys and all the stars in the skies,
every single one just brings me a heartache.
I can't send you away and forget for just one day
about all those little things that still tug at my heartstrings.
But I won't forget. No, I can't forget.
That's just the way I remember you.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
