Why Can't we Remember

It seems that humans don't really know the purpose of life. why dont we remember the reason why we are here. that is assuming we ever knew the reason in the first place.

You've answered your own question, in my opinion.

What I mean by that is the fact that we were not born knowing why we were here and therefore there was nothing to forget.

In terms of possible reasons, many believe in a religion of one form or another, and so that can give meaning and purpose and reason to why they are here.

For some there is no reason, we are just here and that's the beginning and the end of the matter.

For others, there is reason to be found by looking for meaning in our own lives - finding what we believe to be important for us as individuals and then living by that moral code for instance.
