I no longer recall

I Promise
by C. Wolf

I no longer recall the sound of your voice
Not it’s pitch, it’s volume, nor it’s cadence
Your exact height
Your weight
Your shoe size
It’s been fifty-eight years
Of course, memory fades

Some recollections, however, never diminish
The way you bit your bottom lip when I smiled
The extra time you took to open your eyes after a kiss
The doors you opened
The unrequited passion
The hand reaching to hold mine
Oh I promise, as long as there is breath in this body
I will remember you.
