Not Easily Forgotten

I’ve never been good at remembering birthdays, 


or what we talked about two minutes ago,

But I swear,

I’ll remember your favorite song
till the day I die,

history is lost on me,

but I’ll remember the story you told me two years ago that made you smile,

I’ll forget your name the first five times I meet you,

but that’s only because I’m busy memorizing the color of your eyes and how they light up when you laugh,

class after class of memorized facts,

all gone,

but i still remember everything you’ve ever said to me,

I remember everything important,

I remember you,

if I’m forgetting it’s because I’m busy remembering.
