Never Forget This

If we ever part ways,
If we ever come to a halt,
I ask of you one thing-
That you always remember this:
I was true,
And all my words I thought them through,
I meant each of them,
Even when I was angry,
When I doubted you,
It was only cause I wanted to know,
If your love was alive as mine.
Never forget this-
That I always thought of you,
At sunrise and sunset,
Of your hearty laugh,
And familiar gait,
Of a head held high,
Feet buried in boots,
And always your wide smile,
Which ran across your face-
Leaving curves that I could draw.

I hope you will remember,
The person you saw in me,
Was I not alive and lit?
Was I not at hand in need?
Was I a shadow in your dreams?
Or was I real as I now am?
Never forget that girl,
For she was the one you fell for.
She, the little mess you chose,
To mess up your messed up life,
And somewhere in those messes,
A perfect mess evolved,
One we both chose to tend for.

Never forget this too,
That you made me smile for no reason,
And to somehow lose myself,
To drop my guard so low that it scared me,
Till I was uncertain that I was myself,
But you do not know me without you,
You knew not of the locked up heart,
But somehow you unlatched that door,
And let the dove fly out of its cage,
Do not forget you did that,
Never do.
