Trying to Forget

a poem by Gopal Krishan

In this world of deceptive moments,
in this world of mean and strange new faces around,
I wanted to give you a smile,
a smile to carry,
to keep you laughing,
while for others, tears may torment.

My tears will always wish you the best,
my heart will always ride with,
I will forever keep remembering you,
for trying to forget will lead to a test,
test of
unchained, untrained skills
which would require me very hard to apply
my thoughts to focus.

And when I focus my thoughts,
again my tears will flow,
my heart will render screams
because when my thoughts would focus
I’ll be remembering you… VERY SERIOUSLY.
