M is for the Memories that grab you out of place.

C is Chasing answers like you are last in the race

C is the way you Change how the story goes

O is Only for your mind to catch up to what your heart already knows.

Y is You walking past me that September day

A is And not as quietly, slipped away.

V is the Vulnerability born on that street;

E is for it Evaporating when I could walk it again, just my two feet.

N for Never doubting that day was divine

U is for the Understanding that comes with time

E is for Everything that came after that day, even those memories—they have committed to stay.
