Remembering And Forgetting

forgetting is
always harder
than remembering

weigh the two
the former
would the latter
kick off the scale

is a word
reserved for
love ones

and used
always with a dont in front
as it has more weight

and is never
never meant to
be what it is

to forget a love one
never, even if it
takes a hell of time

it is a desultory word
used for errands

such as taking
a book to the teacher

never for two persons
with close relationship
you dont say please remember me
that's begging
you say dont forget me
