The Girl from Mizo Hills

In the Valley of the Clouds and River

Why do you have to ask me
If I still remember?
Is memory too short a life
That forgetting comes thus easy?

For I remember,
More than I’d ever wanted.

Why do you have to ask me
If I still remember?
What does remembrance yield
Save what we need to forget?

For I still remember,
Much more than I’d ever wanted.

Why do you have to ask me
If I still remember?
For having said I do,
You still choose to walk away.

And I still remember,
Although I know I should let go.
