I remembered the snow

I remembered the snow
I worked to forget
I blocked and
I boxed because I could
I blamed myself
I longed for love
I longed to leave
I wanted to stay
I forgot dragging mommy
I forgot the screams
I remembered the snow
I forgot the drinking
I forgot my clothes
I forgot the street
I forgot the night
I remembered the snow
I forgot remembering
I remembered the snow
I forgot the anger
I forgot the pain
I forgot the fear
I remembered the snow
I forgot grandma & grandpa
I forgot their car
I forgot shh shh
I remembered the snow
I forgot mommy waking me
I remembered the snow
I forgot the dark
I remembered the snow
I forgot it all but
I remembered the snow
I remember the crunching
I remember my slippers
I remembered the snow
I remember the screaming
I remembered the snow
I remember the car
I remembered the snow
I remember the cold
I remembered the snow
I remember the fight
I remembered the snow
I remember the flight
I remembered the snow
I remember it now
I remember it all because
I remembered the snow
