your face is hazier now
but I carry you in me still
as long as someone remembers
you are not yet dead
there's something about the tone of those first two lines that i just adore.
i appreciate the shakespearian "i'll preserve you with my writing" nature of this.
thank you! I was reading a book of quotes about writing my dad gave me last Christmas, and thinking about just that sort of 'writing prolongs life in some senses' thing
I think of someone I love who i have not seen in a long long time. I still see his face & hear his voice but its hazy now...its dim.
I understand this completely...its very nice.
