Remember me this way

 

Full of liquor and easy to sway

Head light, yet my body’s full of direction 

Free of the pressing thoughts of all my imperfections 

 

Remember me as a smiling girl

 

Flashing teeth to all eyes that meet mine

Feeling as though it was my duty to make you feel my shine

 

Remember me as my silent laugh 

 

Missing noise but not the snazz

Catching strangers gaze as they walk past

 

Remember my essence as the grandeur of this fleeting ordinary moment 

Perfectly conserved like a plastic covered couch

 

Remember me
