A Short Poem on Loss

I wrote this on an airplane last summer. 

Have you forgotten me?
You've moved on to a new life
With new friends you relate to
A big change in life you felt was needed
And so you proceeded
You said how this change had caused so much loss
But you didn't lose me.
Have you forgotten the fun
The laughs and the tears
We shared those few special years.
Those talks about our kids
You were always so thoughtful and caring
But now I'm forgotten
I hope your new life is all that you dreamed
I'm sad that it doesn't include me.
I miss you.
