i want to remember

I want to remember
you pushing her on the swing, twirling her around, and the sound of her laughing, the look of her dizzy eyes of joy.

I want to remember
watching you run across the field in the sunshine with that pure sweet smile.

I want to remember
you going to sleep with your hockey helmet on, protection from the monsters.

I want to remember
the smell of your skin.

I want to remember
how we can be so mad with each other, and that it never really matters. Nothing will ever touch the love I have for you.

I want to remember
you asking me and saschy to come and be with you, that you always invite her too.

I want to remember
you asking me if I made this dinner then telling me it tastes pretty good.

I want to remember
how I feel as I write this
because what I really want to remember
can never be put into words.
