If You Forget Me…

I will move on easily,

The path lined with flowering trees

Drenched in sunlight, like spring

 

I will throw your photo

Into the dying fire of what

Had been our ardent love

 

It will be easy to let go,

To know that better things

Lie ahead, like spring —

 

Just kidding.


This was inspired by Real Toads’s prompt about using the title of Pablo Neruda’s poem, “If You Forget Me”.
