Your Lie in April Poetry Piece

A few weeks back, I watched this anime called Your Lie In April.  I heard some good things about it, and had a friend voicing a character in it, so I figured I’d give it a watch.  It’s about musicians, the relationships they have, and how music brings people together and it was such an amazing watch:  I don’t know why, maybe it was the subject matter, but I haven’t had an anime affect me so much in years!  I’m not a crier, but man it had me bawling like a baby at the end of the last episode:  It’s just such a beautiful story, and if you like anime, some good drama, and some awesome classical music, I’d suggest giving it a watch on Netflix.


Like I said, I have never had an anime touch me in such a way.  It’s just such a beautiful story, such great characters, and at the show’s end I had so many feels about it that I wrote down some poetry right after episode 24 finished.  I was hoping to make it a song, but I really don’t see that happening because honestly I like how raw it sounds as is and don’t really want to tweak it to make sense in a lyrical way, so figured I’d just share it here.  So without further ado, here is my Your Lie in April themed poetry!


My heart beats in rhythm with yours,

I hear your breath, in tandem with mine.

We work towards the same goal,

We share a life that others would not.


The melody of life,

Shines right through your eyes.

Simple gestures that once were common,

Shine to life inside.

I hear the echoes of the sea,

I feel the wind roar.

It cradles all I hold so dear,

Encircles me, takes away the aches,

The pains of my reality,

The pains I once knew.

Abandoned once, I thought you’d leave,

Even though you’re gone now, you aren’t really.

I can never forget you, I’ll always remember your smile.

The pain I used to know, that I knew for so long,

Just vanishes when I feel you near, when I’m with you.

And even though you’re gone, I can’t help but smile.

Because I remember everything we had, everything we did.

I remember the soft embrace of your smile, of your heart beat.

I remember everything, I remember it all…

And I journey on, I journey onto this journey that is still ours.

Because you’ll always be with me, in your heart.

I’ll never forget you.

Your memory echoes in mine.

I never forget you.  Please don’t forget me.
