How much longer till
will I remember
the way you said
thunderbolt
as tune-der-bolt
or the way you
rubbed my back
when I was sick
as a child?

How many more weeks
will I remember the slope of your nose
or the way your wedding ring
was almost too small for your finger?

How many more months
will I be able to hear your laugh
in the back of my head?

How many more years
will I be allowed to
remember your name?
