Living With Loss

Posted by: Adam Rabinovitch | Categories: Poems

The truest words of all: I will not forget you. 
You are in my waking thoughts, 
my sweetest memories, my dearest dreams. 
I will not forget you. 
You have touched my soul, opened my eyes, 
changed my very experience of the universe.  
I will not forget you. 
I see you in the flowers, the sunset, 
the sweep of the horizon 
and all things that stretch to infinity.  
I will not forget you. 
I have carved you on the palm of my hand. 
I carry you with me forever.

— Ellen Sue Stern, Living With Loss, 1995
