Already my third poem/collab with my dear friend overseas, Manuel. He inspires me and is so kind and talented. I hope we will create many more pieces together dear soul. Big hug!

How do you drown a memory?

Just give me a summary

Give me the understanding, I just don’t have that luxury

Help me erase the unwanted, help me in my recovery.

Help me fight this unseen enemy

Help me reach clarity

Help me, have some clemency

Help me find my destiny.

How do you drown a memory?

~~~

My dear friend, how I wish I have all the answers yet
To take away your sorrow, to help you forget
Painful memories that seem to hold you back
From being the happy man right on track
Towards a future creating new memories
How I wish I possess those remedies

All I can tell you is what I’ve discovered
Life is filled with beautiful souls and colors
Try to remember your first glance at a butterfly
Watching her vibrating wings as she passes by
Colorful wings, enjoying the flowers and the sun
Even though her death already begun

We live a day, a month, eighty years
Don’t walk on with all those fears
Embrace the warmth of the sun
Smell the flowers, see what I see
Take my hand and we will create a new

Memory

Manuel & Patty
