    As fleeting as the swirl of the smoke from my pipe
    The passing beauty of flowers when ripe
    Your sweet memory I struggle to keep
    To hold onto even in my sleep
    But the faithful worker turns his wheels
    Over and over, my fallible mind at its heels
    Grows dimmer and dimmer, pure robbery
    Of my prized keepsake, your memory
    The villain of this piece I'm uncertain
    My mortal mind, all too soon's wilting
    Rough rider time, speeding right ahead
    Causing me to spill diamond moments from my head
    The one thought though that gives me peace
    Should it ever elude me, your memory itself longed for release

    This is my poem it's called 'I remember it all'

    In times gone by I remember it all
    The funs we had
    The friends I made
    The love I won and lost
    The firy anger that burns the soul and makes my mind a cloud
    It hurts my heart to tell you this
    My head is in a fix
    I hate this world in its dark

    In times gone by I remember it all
    The roads I should have taken
    The things I forgot
    The people whose lives destroyed
    The stupid things that I have done
    The evil things
    I hated the things I did
    The dangerous paths I took

    In times gone by I remember it all
    I remember the words unspoken
    The pain that still sits on the heart
    The problems that wreck the soul and never been resolved

    In times gone by I remember it all
    The pain, the heartbreak
    The laughter
    I remember the good times and the bad
    The stories told and untold
    In times gone by I remember
    The memories I have made
