AMNESIA

For Carry On Tuesday




And ABC Wednesday






MOK – DOB ๑๖๑๑๑๗

GROW OLD ALONG WITH ME
THE BEST IS YET TO BE


After the accident;
that was when I started
to hold your hand
for the first time.

I stuck to you like glue,
in case I lost my way
…as well a my
mental bearings.

We’d walk around Chiangmai
behaving like tourists;
temple visits;
days at the zoo.

Summiting Doi Suthep,
Scaling Doi Inthanon,
…and those boat trips
on Mae Nam Ping…

I know you remember,
just as you know I don’t.
We won’t forget
I can’t recall.

Back at home, you would talk;
tell me all about it,
…so I would know
what I’d just done.

I only remember
forgetting all these things
because of you
…holding my hand
