To forget you sounds so easy, yet there is no harder thing,
For what am I to do with all those memories that cling,
So closely that I cannot hear a time or pass a flower,
Without recalling incidents from some sweet bygone hour.
How can I forget you when I know not where to start, and
How can I erase the words you carved upon my heart.
To forget you is not as simple as it seems when even
While I sleep, your voice is speaking in my dreams
