Local Poets : Edward Rieff

Forget Him

My friends say to forget him

Forget his smile

Forget his style

Forget that he made life worthwhile

Forget him

I’m trying to forget him


Forget the look that always took

my breath away

but by the book

I’m trying to forget him


And just about when I think I do

A song will come out of the blue

And I forget the forgetting I’ve been through.

And so I have to start anew

Forgetting.

It’s so hard this forgetting.


Forget the days, forget the nights

Forget the kisses after the fights

Forget the thousand and one delights

Forget the wrongs; forget the rights

Forget him

I think I can forget him


Forget the joy, forget the bliss

Of his tender good by kiss

The quiet times

The jokes I’ll miss

Forget him

I hope I can forget him


I pray that there will come a day

When years have flown

And hair turns grey

That in conversation

I will say

I loved this guy

His name was

Hey

I’m trying to remember – It’s so hard to remember
