Memories that can’t hide
Reminder of a time gone by
Ghosts and demons
of the world that passed me by.
Look up and look back
What do you see?
Bits and pieces of my life
coming back to me.
An era of innocence and naivety
Songs of laughter drifting back at me
Warm sunny memories
Caressing my mind and me.
A gentle smile, a tentative touch
Closing my eyes, missing it much
Grasping at the tendrils of the memory
Not letting it escape me in a rush.
Revelling in the happiness
Letting it take over my sadness
Moments of blissfulness
A smile of softness
