A Simple Recall


It had been so long, since I heard that song,
it brought such chills to me..
Remembering times that ended so wrong
But in my heart they'll always be.

The fun we had and the laughter
rings forever in my mind
and though we didn't stay together
it was love of the truest kind

As the song played on each moment
the past had come back once more
A very innocent love from yesterday
A memory left from years before.

    Music, smells and dreams, all utterly fascinate me with the invisible power they command. Love this poem, and the subject it explores.

    Beautiful words Dee. Music is so healing and can provide sad memories and of course we must cherish those wonderful memories too. I do love it when taken back in time with music. Thank You (Report) Reply

    When we hear some songs, we are made to travel back in time, recollecting some pleasant memories of a bygone relationship! For a moment we forget our existence in the present and we are transported to another time and locale! I enjoyed this happy recollection of yours! Thanks for the great comment! (Report) Reply

    A song that brings back memories to mind. Those type of songs really
    touches our heart and soul. The simple pleasures that means so much
    in life. Thanks for the memory! (Report) Reply

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
