Remember My Name
Remember my name. When the darkness descends and your solitude becomes
bitter, look back, remember. The first time you saw me, how nervous you made
me when you said hello. Those sweet summer days we spent together, the winter
evenings when you would come over to have dinner with my family. Do you
remember that first Christmas? You helped decorate the tree and then tried to
sneak some sweets out of the kitchen, while my mother and sisters were baking.
The evening we spent under my father's watchful eye.
Remember, and let the memories warm and comfort you. Remember how long it
took for you to actually call me by my name, and don't forget, don't let it be
snatched away from you. No matter where you go, remember my name.
