a way to remember

i found this poem and i thought it was beautiful and i wanted to post it somewhere. so i thought i'd post it on here while i remembered. because this week is all about remembering. and how sad it is to be left behind to try and understand.


“heart weeps.
head tries to help heart.
heads tells heart how it is, again:
you will lose the ones you love. they will all go. but even the earth will go, someday.
heart feels better, then.
but the words of the head do not remain long in the ears of the heart.
heart is so new to this.
i want them back, says heart.
head is all heart has.
help, head. help, heart.”
