I think I have forgotten

To talk to him

I haven’t heard him speak in so long

Maybe I lost the will

The ability to hear

I used to talk to him

When I was young

And missing him

Words beneath my heart

Hidden from the voice

A language

Only the lost can hear

I heard him call my name


I think I have forgotten

How—can that be true

Talk to me now

I promise

I will listen

I am listening

What is there left to say

What did you forget to tell me

I have time

You can have all you need

I have not forgotten you
