Can you remember

“’Can you stay friends with an ex?’ she ask.
By this she means, can you forget the nights
when your head was on his stomach
and his hands were in your hair
and you swore you would never let each other go?
Or, maybe more importantly, can you remember but still let go? 
By this, at least, I mean: Can you remember and not want it back?
Can you remember and not feel sad?”
