a moment

“we do not remember days… we remember moments.” (cesare pavese)

i often wonder if you remember.

soon after we started dating, we used to spend hours on the phone talking. one particular day, i hung up the phone after a long phone exchange. as i turned to leave the room, the phone rang. it was you.

“say my name,” you said.

perplexed by the request, i paused for a moment. then i said your name.

“thanks,” you continued, “i love the way you say my name.”

and you hung up the phone. and i smiled.

since then you’ve come and gone, but that memory remains.

a sweet reminder of times past.

i often wonder if you remember.
