Trying to remember

I’m trying to remember,
you haven’t gone away.
I’m trying to remember,
you promised you would stay.

Sometimes I can’t recall your face,
your voice goes silent too.
It all reminds me of the past,
I don’t know what to do.
 
You aren’t like them,
you never were.
Honest and safe,
so different from her.
 
A carrier of hope,
as well as fears.
A holder of secrets,
and the tears.

You say it can be different,
it all comes down to trust.
Some days it feels impossible,
as you fade into dust.
