Poemetry: I Remember; I Cannot Forget

I remember my father’s voice

As he implored my hand and help.

I cannot forget his forlorn

Tone as we beheld the devil’s choice.

She shrieked an apoplectic yelp

Ere eyes that beheld her well that morn.

I remember her head in my hands:

Soft and warm and stiff she shook.

I cannot forget her distant

Gaze that rested on holy lands.

Away she ran without a look

But never leaving for an instant.

I remember; I cannot forget.
