I scribbled your address upon a note
Now I just don't know where it is,
I was going to drop a line
Maybe I used it as a shopping list.

I jotted your phone number on my hand
Oh, what now will you say,
I washed it away while swimming
Now it's forever gone astray.

I tried to remember your email addy
By using a code or such,
But with my memory of blind flashes
Maybe that was asking way too much.

I even got all sentimental today
While playing at the beach,
And designed your name in pretty shells
I 'thought' the tide would never reach.

And then I found the sharpest rock
To engrave a memory within some bark,
But it just splintered and fell apart
All I managed was a jagged mark.

I embroidered you a poem in cross stitch
What a keepsake that would be,
But how sad today I found
Silverfish had kidnapped it from me.

So all wrapped up in sentiment
I sat to overlook the sea,
And just prayed for you the longest while
For in my heart my dearest friend
Is where you're meant to be.
