Please Accept, Do Not Forget

 

That night of sin

Sex in the park

Up against a fence

Alone in the dark

 

Nine months later

A son was then born

Looking just like you

I could have sworn

 

I married another

We two could not be

I had to forget you

Please can you see?

 

So I forgot you

 

Two year down the line

My marriage at stake

Forgetting made me ill

Made my mind break

 

You were then gone

I could not remember

Just a shaky feeling

Each snowy December

 

I crashed and burned

Time after time

Tried taking my life

It was such a crime

 

Why did I forget you?

 

My life pulled together

Eight years of fight

Stable if not perfect

Till the next fateful night

 

“Hello my lovely”

So where is your partner?”

I look at you confused

“No? Then give me your number”

 

Our love life began

I thought we were true

Because of things about you

That I simple just knew

 

Did I completely forget you?

 

One day looking at photos

I then noticed your fear

You started to remember

To you it all became clear

 

You started to panic

You started to run

From the only reminder

Your one and only son

 

I did not understand

Could not comprehend

Why did you leave me?

Why this sudden end?

 

I started to remember you

 

To me it came back

My amnesia unbound

The guilt and the hurt

My memories re-found

 

The fear and panic

Started to unfold

The intense guilty feeling

Of the son I did stole

 

I begged and I pleaded

You stayed still silent

The emotions in me

Rage in me violent

 

WHY did I have to remember you?

 

Counselling for months

I just kept on trying

Through tears and the hurt

I just kept on crying

 

For me it’s now over

My mind finally free

Accepted the forgetting

And what it did to me

 

To readers I write this

To all you I do beg

Please learn to accept

And never forget.
