I Remember You

I remember you
I remember an unconquerable solitude
I remember lovely madness
And a sweet sobriety
I remember your eyes livelier than life itself
But that, in the same manner
promised a death more terrible than death itself

I remember endless days that came to an end
I remember the rain beating against the windowpane
I remember the indecipherable taste of your lips
And the warm softness of your skin
I remember the aching of remembering
The pain of your fading presence
The cold brightness of the moon

No, no more remembering
Yet it's impossible
Not to remember you
