Remember

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I slumbered in deep wells near the sea, lulled by the steady crash of waves;

Surrounded by darkness and silence;

Sometimes the tides pulled me to life, towards the surface;

Sunlight sparkling off shale and polished sand;

The moon overhead covered me in silver, the nights chill deepened my slumbering heart;

The glitter of stars against a night sky sent me back into my well;

I wrapped my mantle across my shoulders and against the chill;

My victorious, imprinted on skin the monsters chained outside;

My warrior princess fierce in her guardianship of my heart.

Then you reached down and whispered, remember Cara;

Love awaits, roll away the stones piled high and remember;

I said no, sputtered, then silent then yes.

How did you do that to my shattered self with just remember.

Then you said laugh, I adore you and I believed never questioning.

You asked, will you know and I said no and then I hope and then yes.

Then you said, I am broken and I said so am I, together we are whole;

In my long slumbering heart I dreamed of you forever;

Then you reached down and said;

Remember Cara and I did.
