no need for a reminder

i wrote to you again the other day

missing you like water after a fast

you were larger than life i find time and again

feeling lost in the mundane daily grind

unable to see humor in my inability to last

it is not a special day for you

no anniversary has thus been assigned

no prompts delivered my way

i am in no need for one

for you haven’t made it to my memory box

and you never can or will

as only the forgotten are housed in mine

~ Candayıma, to my late uncle (September 28, 2015)
