I am the person you will always forget

 

I am the name that crossed your lips

Without meaning, without thought.

I am the person you will always forget.

 

I am the face your eyes once saw.

They passed me by, but never lingered.

I am the person you will always forget.

 

I am the distant voice calling your name.

You are unreachable and I am unheard.

I am the person you will always forget.

 

I am the person you go to when it’s dark.

Yet when you shine my dear, I’m forgotten,

Invisible, unnoticed.

 

But I will no longer be that person you always forget.

No longer invisible.

No longer unnoticed.

 

I’ll be the one haunting thought that’s filling your head,

The one memory you’ll look back and always regret,

The person who is gone and you’ll never forget.
