Split Second

What do you remember?

If my name pops in your head
What do you remember?

Is it my silly laugh
When I told you ‘I’m fat’?

Is it my face that glitters
When you offer me sweets

Is it my voice
And at some point my noise?

Is it the way I cried
and the way I tried it to hide

Will you smile
when you remember?
Will you sigh
if you remember?

And if nothing comes out
nothing is remembered
Then what am I?
A split second memory.
