I Will

If you’re in my life
You matter
If you were once in my life
And that time has passed
You matter
If we shared nothing more
Than a quiet conversation
On a park bench in June
You matter

If you think I’ve forgotten you
I haven’t
If you think I stopped caring
I didn’t
If you think you might mean nothing
Someday when we sit on groaning wicker chairs
On opposite sides of the globe
You won’t

If you think I don’t know that you don’t remember me as fondly
Or at all
I do
If you think I can’t possibly remember
A brushed hand, a single date, a shared laugh
I can
If you think I won’t remember you
When we cross paths late at night
In the fog that lies lightly across a
Silent city street like wavering cotton
I will
