2: Beyond Forgetting

3: For a moment I thought I could forget you.

4: For a moment I thought I could still the restlessness in my heart.

5: I thought the past could no longer haunt me. Nor hurt me. How wrong I was!

6: For the past, no matter how distant, is as much a part of me as life itself.

7: And you are part of that life.

8: You are so much a part of me.

9: Of my dreams, my early hopes, my youth and my ambitions...

10: That in all my tasks I can't help remembering you.

11: Many little delights and things remind me of you.

12: Yes, I came. And would my pride mock my real feelings?

13: Would the love song, the sweet and lovely smile on your face, be lost among the deepening shadows?

14: I have wanted to be alone.

15: I thought I could make myself forget you in silence and in song...

16: And yet I remembered. For who could forget the memory of the once lovely, the once happy world such as ours?

17: I came because the song that I kept through the years is waiting to be sung.

18: I cannot sing it without you.

19: The song when sung alone will lose the essence of its tune, because you and I had been one.

20: I have wanted this misery to end, because it is part of my restlessness.

21: Can't you understand? Can't you divine the depth and the tenderness of my feelings towards you?

22: Yes, can't you see how I suffer in this even darkness without you?

23: You went away because you mistook my silence for indifference.

24: But silence, my dear, is the language of my heart.

25: How could I essay the intensity of my love when silence speaks a more eloquent tone?

26: But, perhaps, you didn't understand...

27: Remember, I came because the gnawing loneliness is there and will not be lost ......

28: until the music is sung, until the poem is heard, until the silence is understood....

29: until you come to me again.

30: For you alone can blend the music and memory into one consuming ecstasy.

31: You alone...

32: Thanks for browsing my flipbook and hoping that it touched your heart. With much love, Amy
