the memory remains

i am lost in the midst
of my memories trail
where the ghosts have broken
free from their chains
i thought they were gone
all but forgotten
but the memory remains

where have you gone
my lost only brother
i used to see you
behind the flames 
those dreams of mine
you would often visit
still the memory remains 

where have they taken
the one whom i looked too
every breeze kindly whispers 
as my soul cries in vain
the dark of the night
cannot hide you forever
now the memory remains

Love how the repetition of "the memory remains" itself reflects on how memories echo continuously.

A sibling lost is unbearable and no words of compassion can bring solace to the person in grief. I am truly sorry, my friend, Clifton. I have nothing but admiration for your natural skills, Clifton. Kindly continue to share with us.

You already know I lost my older brother last year and we share the same pain . You need to talk about your memories to make easyer for you , me I cannot talk about it yet . Your poem is wonderful touching .
