Drowning In Fear


Samantha Mullen

I'm scared of forgetting,
The memories of the past.
And I write them down,
Hoping they stay.
I want them to stay forever,
I want them to forever last.
What if in the future,
All of them fade away.
I'll grow up and forget,
The trifles I went through.
And maybe I'll lose touch,
Of all my smiles.
How will I remember,
If everything they said was true.
Let alone the errors,
From all of my trials.
Will everything leave me,
Except for my memories of sad.
Will I only remember,
My unfortunate tears.
Who am I kidding,
I'll have to remember something glad.
And I've got to stop worrying,
Or the memories will drown in fears.
