What if one day you woke up
And found that your memories were gone
Not knowing who you are
Nor where you came from?
What if all your memories
Faded away all of a sudden
All those things you wished you remembered-
Just seemed to be forgotten.
All those times you held dear
All those moments you wished you’d cherished
Faded, gone, and disappeared,
As though they never existed.
The people who supported you
through good times, bad times
And cheered you on till the end-
Doesn’t it pain you now that you can’t remember
Anything because of amnesia?
Their words, their actions,
and all the time they spent with you
Doesn’t it hurt when you can’t remember
Anything that brought you so much cheer?
Their love, their care and their compassion for you
Doesn’t it hurt not being able to remember
All the times they cheered you up
When times got tough,
And the times they embraced you in a hug
And made you forget all that was hard?
The person whom you loved the most
Your soulmate, your dearest.
Not being able to recognize his face,
Probably hits you the hardest.
Not being able to remember that apology
Which you could have used to save a friendship
Not remembering that date
Which you could have reunited with your family
after staying apart for so long,
hurts when you don’t even remember
how you were feeling that December
for Christmas to come,
and a reunion feast together.
Not being able to remember it all
Because you have amnesia
Not being able to recall
Anything at all-
It hurts…like hell.
