I Want You To Know One Thing – A Poem

“I want you to know one thing”.

That if by chance,
you come to think of me,
enthralled by my childlike whims,
wishful thinking,
starry eyes,
just know that
I’ve already thought about you.

That if by chance
you come to miss me,
the little trinkets of hope,
in sail boats,
I sent you
on those lonely days,
just know that,
I’ve already missed you.

That if by chance,
by some hopeful chance
you come to love me,
my heart,
the intricacies of my castle,
an invitation to dance
under a mosaic
of broken dreams,
just know that,
I’ve already loved you.

That if by chance,
you come to forget me;
a notch in your shoe
a memory so thankful to forget
our pages no longer worth turning,
just know that,
I’ve already forgotten you.

But if by chance,
you can’t forget me,
my honest declarations
masked in cheshire cat smiles
hand hugs,
and dancing under lamp lights
just know that,

I’ve never forgotten you…
