Sometimes it's easy to forget

Sometimes I forget.

I forget how small he was.
I forget how sad I was.
I forget the dreams we had.
I forget what should be.
I forget the things I should feel.
I just forget.

But something always reminds me.

A bright blue sky with warm sunshine.
His footprints on his headstone.
Sam begging for someone to play with.
The three of us out sledding.
A conversation with a friend.
The empty crib.

How could I forget?

Why do I have to remember?

Rose Kennedy said it best with this quote:

It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, (protecting its sanity), covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But, it is never gone.
