I Remember Your Heart

I can't remember your name

Might not recognize your face

Bits of your story have fallen away

as beautifully as snow flakes


The details don't stick

in this ancient mind of mine

but when I look in your eyes, I feel the spark

For it's then that I remember your heart


And a flood of memories enters in

to nourish the barren fields I'm left with

and suddenly I'm swimming in a sea of love

where I can recall what's most precious


Your beauty as simple as a Rumi poem

Your story as timeless as a gemstone

Your heart as gentle as the fallen snow

Still pure despite the bitter cold


You will always mean something to me

Though circumstance pulled us apart

And as I remember less and less, dear

Please know that I'll always remember your heart
