On The Morning I Forgot Your Face

I woke up one morning as a dreamless sleeper,
In a bed warm as firelight, in air that seemed much sweeter.
Moved some weights around the basement just like the doctor said,
and I had no thoughts of you – I didn’t feel the dread.
Didn’t think of your eyes as I brewed a pot of coffee, and
Fed worms to the aquarium without thinking of how you dropped me.
The color of the thickening eggs didn’t bring to mind your hair,
And I caught myself smiling like a child called to dare,
Then I went onto the back deck, stretched out in the fresh frost,
I found you hiding in my thoughts, realized nothing’s ever lost,
Except the people we choose to forget, nothing’s ever lost.
