That the heart should remember

I would not be surprised
or so, or such, I thought
that the heart should remember
what the mind forgot

When it wandered farther
from where you are now
searching for tomorrow
forgetting yesterday's vow

For love's sweet promise
if, or what, should be
held tight once within my heart
had flown, departing from me

or maybe, just maybe
it's lying there quite dead
residing within the coffin
that is my heart, instead
