I’ve lived too many days
To have lost them, but
No trace remains

Pictures capture moments
Videos, the experience
Where do I find the feeling?
My ecstasy and pain lose luster
In memories left fallible by age

We’ve lived too long
To not know our own home
I’ve lived too long
To not know my own name

Fading away like night into day
So many pages to this novel already
And still so many chapters on the way

My masterpiece, my life
Goes untitled until
My last line is breathed
To paper

Too many days I’ve lived
To not stain the Earth
With my grace

Forget my face tomorrow
Remember my dreams today
