My Heart Remembers You

Wrapped in his Angel Wings

An Angel Falls - Gabriel Yared

9/11/13

The memories fade all on their own
and I wander here feeling alone
some parts of me have turned to stone
still my heart remembers you

I walk the path laid before me
what's up ahead, I still can't see
I'm not sure where I want to be
but my heart remembers you

I got rid of all your worldly things
sadness is all they had to bring
thoughts of you will always sting
still my heart remembers you

I completely changed my life
from those days I was your wife
to live in peace and avoid strife
but my heart remembers you

I close my eyes still I can't see
our past and all our memories
sometimes I think it shouldn't be
still my heart remembers you

I still have so much life to go
love to give and ways to grow
no one will live in your shadow
but my heart remembers you

I am grateful for our time
and should I lose my mind
I am sure that I will find
that my heart remembers you

I often miss my warrior braid but I do so enjoy it short.

I saw your picture on facebook. You're hair looks great short.

Lissette (author) from Central Florida on October 11, 2013:

I am so happy to see you Nighthag and am glad that you felt my work. Thank you.

K.A.E Grove from Australia on October 02, 2013:

So beautifully heartbreaking

True love never dies ...sometimes it's forced to change and this was a potent expression of that

Just lovely

Would be if you were an EO bishop, LOL!

Lissette (author) from Central Florida on September 12, 2013:

Sueswan, so happy to see you hear. Thank you for the beautiful words. I appreciate it... and that you would share them on this day especially. Luck to you.

Lissette (author) from Central Florida on September 12, 2013:

Daniel, yet it grows back... hahaha...

Silly rules. I suppose its a sin.

Lissette (author) from Central Florida on September 12, 2013:

Michael... a second look is a huge compliment in a world with so much to see...

Sueswan on September 12, 2013:

Hi Moms-Secret

This is so beautiful and heartfelt. Today my heart remembers my dad. Hard to believe he has be gone 14 years.

Take care and have a great weekend

Voted up+++ and sharing

It grows back. I had a friend who did the same with her hair.

I heard Eastern Orthodox bishops don't cut their hair though.

Lissette (author) from Central Florida on September 12, 2013:

Daniel, I had the same thought. I cut off all the hair to donate it, so I look a little different now but its eerie and it messes with my head. I don't even know who the artist is. Makes me wonder if stories reveal themselves without us. How can one explain that someone unknown person would draw something from a story that I have lived. I mean the characters are even right. The wings are on him and not on me. Of all the faces in the world to get these two... Its a statistical anomaly.

I like that you can put a face to the words you read from me.

cleaner3 from Pueblo, Colorado on September 12, 2013:

came back to see the picture and read this poetry again.. mesmerizing ..both ! thank you !

Michael

newenglandsun on September 12, 2013:

The woman looks like you, Legacy. At least from the pictures I've seen of you that you've posted here.

Lissette (author) from Central Florida on September 12, 2013:

Purely coincidence. I saw the picture and it is his face. Then the words just came... as with most of my writing, completely unplanned.

newenglandsun on September 12, 2013:

Maybe 9/11 widows but it seems the day this was made on was coincidental.

Lissette (author) from Central Florida on September 12, 2013:

Michael, I am so glad that you enjoyed it. :) I like your visits.

Lissette (author) from Central Florida on September 12, 2013:

Goodmorning Frank! :) All these different words you have used to describe me and my work thru our time knowing each other makes me wonder who or how I am in your minds eye. That I care to be curious says that you are a dear friend.

Lissette (author) from Central Florida on September 12, 2013:

Nice to meet you Janshares. I think people who have felt the depth of certain feelings can really relate to each other even if the situations they faced are very different. I am grateful that the work has the potential to reach 9/11 survivors but I would be lying if I said it was deliberate. I love when my work translates itself to someone else without my intent. Happy to meet you.

Lissette (author) from Central Florida on September 12, 2013:

Thank you Writinglover. I am always happy to see you.

cleaner3 from Pueblo, Colorado on September 11, 2013:

beautiful ..heartfelt poetry.! love it .!

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on September 11, 2013:

wow touching, a bit warm, and soft and then beautiful too I loved it MOMS

Janis Leslie Evans from Washington, DC on September 11, 2013:

Your poem depicts the longing and sadness of many 9/11 survivors. The image and the song compliment the poem perfectly. The song is very haunting, igniting a visual of all those who lost their lives, floating up like angels. Good job. Voted up and beautiful.

Jennifer from Lost...In Video Games and Stories on September 11, 2013:

This was beautiful, Moms! Enough said.
