SHE REMEMBERS

 By Charles Robert Lindholm

 she looks back on her life

and the lovers that she’s known

no one ever lasted long

and now she is alone


she never put her roots down deep

she loved a world of thrills

afraid to lose the romance

she believed commitment kills

 

and it hurts her to remember

the vows that she has spoken

all the lives that she has shattered

all the bonds that she has broken

 

as she looks back on her life

and the lovers that she’s had

she remembers one true love

and it makes her very sad

 

she wishes she could change things

and recapture what she lost

she’s had pleasure and had passion

but she pays a heavy cost


‘cause she remembers
 


she wants to just forget

          but

she

           remembers
