Dreams & Delusions…

I don’t remember…

I don’t remember dates.
Deaths,
Birthdays,
Weddings,
Breakups…
I remember substance.
Lives,
People,
Companions,
Lovers…
I don’t remember the date we fell apart.
I remember you.

  2. I’ve always wondered why I don’t recall dates. I take in the experience as you’ve described. It’s a different way of memorizing. I like to think it’s the result of being deeply present in the person within the moment…. ?

    • Yes, I think that is it… Also I see my friends and family so sad when they remember the anniversary of a death or loss, I think I’ve always had an aversion to assigning dates and times to people and feelings.

      • I honestly find that attaching dates is like adding some filing system which would take something away. I feel like I’m more forgetful though. Remembering has to be triggered by something other than a date. ??
