The Ones who Forgot

She was a face that I forgot
She blames me but how can that be true?
I never picked up a blade and carved off her memory
From my brain. Tell her it was the distance,
(And not me)
That erased her face from my mind;
Like the tides and the winds erase the sand castles
on the beach till there remains but a vague memory
Tell her I'm sorry but
...she can't deny she forgot me too.
