Memories Fade...Nothing Remains

Poetry By: Nabs

Memories! A way to cross borders and be together forever! But when these memories become a way of life...or just a way to live life easily, and when these memories fade away, for some reasons or another...Nothing Remains...Absolutely nothing!

In the shadows of the past,
When you went away
Tiptoeing out my life, my world
I never felt your absence
You never walked away
Memories gripped me,
Stronger everyday
I never realized your absence,
Memories kept me breathing

In the darkest night,
Memories kept me fearless.
In the crowdiest place,
My eyes searched for you,
Memories kept me hoping.
In the saddest moment ever,
Memories kept me smiling.

Your absence grew me stronger,
I could fight back every tear,
I could forget every fear,
Memories kept me living.
Thus, I moved on and on
Embraced life to the fullest
Met happiness, shunned loneliness.

Dreams overpowered me,
Memories stepped back
I knew I was losing something
But I was too far away
Memories knocked again and again
But I never opened the door

Today, you are still not here.
Strangely, I am missing you!
Where are the memories?
That kept me breathing!
Where are the memories?
That kept me laughing.

Tears settled on my eyes,
Breath wrestled down my heart,
As I realized…
Memories faded away,
Nothing remained anymore!
