Remember Me

© 2006 Robert Lydiate

I hear the stories of long ago
And of the pain that would not go
The hurt, the shame that came within
The lasting result of other's sin
I'm angry, I'm sad, and begin to cry
But don't want to remember why
A picture forms in my mind
Of memories thought left far behind
A boy, a man, and broken trust
The silent pain was so unjust
The theft of joy was so abrupt
For no protector would interrupt
The destruction of that little soul
No one there to keep it whole
And here I sit, I'm now a man
Reaching for healing when I can
I long to feel, to hear, to see
And to be able to remember me
