Dear Clark

I can’t remember my first words to you,

But I can’t forget all the things I wanted to say.

I can’t remember what you were wearing that day in April,

But I can’t forget the way you smiled the whole night.

I can’t remember your phone number,

But I can’t forget dialing it at 3AM to cry about my day.

I can’t remember what song was playing,

But I can’t forget that you actually got me to dance.

I can’t remember where we were going,

But I can’t forget the sound of your resounding laugh echo through the car.

I can’t remember the exact tone of your voice,

But I can’t forget the way it sounded shouting my name down the school hall.

I can’t remember every miniscule detail about your face,

But I can’t forget that scar just below your eye.

I can’t remember how it feels to take a breath without endless thoughts of you,

But I can’t forget how you had the ability to make me forget how to breathe.

And oh, I’m not even sure I remember your favorite color,

But I can’t forget the color that matched your eyes.

I can’t even remember my last words to you,

But I can’t forget all the things I never got to say.

I can’t remember everything about you,

But oh, I can’t ever forget about you.
