Delete

There are

Still

Songs

That I can’t

Listen to

Anymore,

Because of

Who

They belong to,

But I can’t

Bear the thought

Of letting go

Of the music

And the memories.

It’s all too easy

In this modern world

To click

A button

And delete

A song,

An email,

A memory,

A person.

An entire chapter

Of a life

Together

Can be

Erased

And sent away

To the recycle bin,

Then permanently

Deleted-

With just the click

Of a button

And the blink

Of an eye.

The years,

The tears,

The laughs

And the crying

Can be sent away

Without bias

Or emotion.

But,

There are still

Times,

When the tears-

Real or imaginary-

Feel

Like a purging

And release,

Forgiveness,

That is needed

And enjoyed.

With a song,

They return

And leave again,

So I keep them-

Even if I can’t

Listen to them

Yet.
