for when i cannot say

do not record
the empty mirror
of my eyes
when you reflect
upon the essence
of this life

remember me
my loved ones
as i was
not as i am
for i am faded
and unwound
from this world
but not yet gone

leaf again
the autumn pages
where we pressed
the images
of our uncompleted book

replay for me
your version
of those memories
which are ours

recall again
i love you now
just as
i loved you then

remember this
for me
when my time has tangled
and i am wasting
from your sight
