I will remember you

IMELDA YABARA

I will remember you,
every day,

no photos or keepsakes,
But I will remember you make no mistake.

How can I forget?
When my heart has carved,
an image of your face.

When my nose picks up your scent,
everywhere, everyday.

When my heart reaches for you,
and is left wanting,
when it feels emptiness in your place.

When my ears long for your whisper,
your chuckle,
your roar,

I will remember you,
every day.
