Rewind - Hayden Robinson

Leaves that flew away from our hands

crumble in my mind like sand.

Smiles and twirls of the curls in your hair

turn dark and grey the longer I stare.

The riverbank where we always trailed along

has now, like you, dried up and gone.

My hand upon your soft, warm chest

reminds me now of bitterness.

The I love yous we murmured each day

has me wishing they will go away.

Can I forget those days? Can I forget our time?

never, because I’m on rewind.
