Deep within the recesses
Of my mind
Hidden behind a locked
Door is your name.
Pardon me if I can’t
Find the key.
My mind is already cluttered—
So many doors.
So many locks.
So many keys.
These doors hold
The way in to many memories.
Some of them are faded
Over time. Some return
To haunt me. Some linger
As tattered images.
I recall your face, though.
Somewhere back when.
It jumps out. Takes me to
A time when I was young and filled
With hope. For the world. For life.
It’s one filled with character,
Your face. I never forget a face.
I’m sure somewhere, somehow
You made an impression. It’s my saving grace.
The ability to recall a face.
But pardon me if I can’t remember your name.
