This was an assignment in my english class, however now I'm not sure if it was assigned to my class or just the teacher's ap class... Anyways this was for a sensory memory poster thingy and I based mine on the olfactory or aka sense of smell. Please don't judge too harshly I'm not really used to writing poetry...


Cologne

When I smell it I can see your smiling face,

I close my eyes and pray God gives you love and grace.

I do not know what it is you wore,

But I still remember the distinct smell it bore.

It's ingrained in my mind forevermore.

All the memories come rushingback to me,

And I smile remembering how you used to be.

You were kind, loving, and always a blast,

I hate how only for so long could it last.

Now I can only see you when I think of my past.

So everytime I get a wiff of that old cologne,

I start to feel a little alone,

But then I realize that it aint so bad,

Because one day I'll once again get to see my dad.

And that's why I'll nevver forget that smell you had.


Please review! It would mean a lot to know what you dear readers think!
