It's funny how the human mind chooses to keep some things and throw others out isn't it?
It'll remember your name, right up until somebody asks for it.
It'll remember your birthday, until you get sick of counting the years you've been on this rock.
It'll remember that when it rains, you need an umbrella, till you leave the house without one.
It'll remember your anniversary, till he dies and you don't have one anymore.
It'll remember names, until you have to put them with faces.
It'll remember how much you love someone, until one day, it doesn't.
One day, it'll start to forget things.
Like your birthday,
Like the days of the week,
Or the fact you have a dog.
The human brain can process up to 800 words per minute,
But when I speak to you, you don't seem to take anything in,
Asking the same old questions,
Telling the same stories.
Over and Over.
But I don't mind.
Because sometimes the human brain can still amaze you.
It will surprise you with stories of how you met,
Where you went on your honeymoon.
It'll surprise you with sweet poems,
Memorized from long days having them read aloud to you.
It'll point out a pattern in the stars, remembered from your childhood, all those years ago.
But as quickly as the memories came,
They quickly fade away.
