The edges of my memory slip away,
Frayed by wear and time.
I bury my face in your wardrobe
Holding the scent of yesterday.
I hear your voice calling me
Through fragments of the past,
Looking for one last smile
Across the years.
Your love envelops me,
A warm haze of lost tomorrows.
I reach for you across the twilight,
Trying to resist the fear,
The dark forgetfulness,
The unbidden jumble of my mind.
