Remember Me.

& I hope you lay awake at night,                                                                                                     thinking about me,                                                                                                                                 staring at the ceiling fan looking for answers to the questions                                                   you never had the courage to ask.

& I hope you catch yourself remembering little pieces of me                                                           as you go about your day,                                                                                                                     wondering what I’m doing, wishing you could see me one last time.

&  I hope you remember all the pretty words you said while you’re lying next to her in bed, the ones I’m sure you told her too.

& I hope you remember that I gave you the best of me even when you deserved the worst.

& I hope you remember all these things because I’ll be dead & gone                                       long before I ever forget.
