Suddenly Light

Suddenly Light

Lights had gone out
once again

It was dark long enough
for me to forget warmth
The idea of brightness
was nowhere to be seen
Until today
I held a random match
I found
Instinctively, I scraped 
its head across a surface
Suddenly light!
I could begin
to remember

I won’t forget


I won’t forget

I will no longer see
the memories
and feel sadness
and loss.
I can feel its power
when I see the past.

When we lose connection,
we shouldn’t forget what 
we’ll always have:
Our experiences together.
Even when we aren’t
entirely together,
we can still pick up a phone
and laugh.
