Memory

I've never seen you before

Yet I know your name

Everything seems so different

Yet it's all the same

It seems like we've known each other forever

But it's only been a day

I try to remember

But it seems I can't

It hurts to forget

Yet there is no pain

There was a meadow

A river, a tree

Both of us were there

Yet our eyes never met

We know each other's thoughts

Yet we keep our minds locked up

We are silent

Yet we are loud

We can hear the echo of laughter we never laughed

We would never see each other

But we are always together

We could never face the sun and moon

Yet we face the stars

The memory seems washed away

By unseen ocean tides

Yet we remember it

Washed up on an unseen bay

I forget myself

But I remember you
