Fleeting

I can still remember
The sweet smell of summer and youth
The honeydew residue of innocence and naivete
Sticky sweet in the air around me
Flowing free, carefree, ignorant of the word
Responsibility

I can still remember you
Whoever you were
For this summer or that
Fresh and pure, clean, unexplored, exciting and original
A taste brand new, a scent unknown, a touch
Incomparable

I can still see the sky
Black as coal lit by heavenly souls
Deeper and wider than time itself
Deafening in its silence and promise
Undemanding, unchallenging, indifferent, yet
Solacing

I can still remember me
Light, airy, unconcerned, smitten and confused
Aching for inclusion, seclusion, delusion
Ignorant and proud; hollow and loud
Desperately grasping at fading shadows
Unattainable

I see me now
Helplessly adrift on a tar-black sea
Borderless, bottomless, indiscoverable except
By those souls whose lessons remain unlearned
Un-salvageable

Beautiful as always JJ. I couldn't help but remember the lyrics to this song and think this might be her answer to you:

Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sand - I remember you
Through the sleepless nights and every endless day
I'd wanna hear you say - I remember you

Oh alright! So now I'm going to go with the whole "I Remember" theme we've got going here. Here's another song.... BTW, who did that song that CAndy mentioned earlier. I KNOW I know it but I can't place it. How frustrating!!!!!!! LOL

There's a cold wind out tonight
The chill of distant eyes
An orbit survey finds...your mind

I will remember
You will remember
The star that came tonight...

There's a thought that fills your mind
A vision of time
When knowledge was confined
And then we wonder how machines
Can steal each other's dreams
From points that are unseen...It's real

I will remember
You will remember
The star that came tonight

When you gaze at the evening sky
And you're reaching out with your mind
You might see the nation's eyes
Don't hide...It's you

I will remember
You will remember
The star that came tonight
Oh can't you see the light
Of the knowing star

Queensryche
I Will Remember

Amy Grant is who Candy quoted!!! (in case anyone else cares to know that!)

I found yet another "I Will Remember" song to go in this theme.

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

Remember the good times that we had?
I let them slip away from us when things got bad
How clearly I first saw you smilin’ in the sun
Wanna feel your warmth upon me, I wanna be the one

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I’m so tired but I can’t sleep
Standin’ on the edge of something much too deep
It’s funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word
We are screaming inside, but we can’t be heard

But I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I’m so afraid to love you, but more afraid to loose
Clinging to a past that doesn’t let me choose
Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night
You gave me everything you had, oh you gave me light

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories
Weep not for the memories

I Will Remember You
Sarah McLachlan

LOVE the poem, btw, Doc. I think if you gather enough of those together you could make your $1M a lot quicker than me.

Thanks everyone!

(OK, lacking the personal touch, I know. But it's been a few days and I haven't had the time to reflect. But I am glad that you came, and read, and... wait a minute, you came?!?!?! Where the hell was I???)

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...
