Ago


Long ago
I still see their faces glow
Those people who i grew to know
And loved along the way.
Girls i miss
And never got to kiss
Men's camaraderie
Stole them away from me
Our gang was free and young
All rebel songs were sung
And now that girl in red
Remains within my head
Unaged
But caged
By time.
Enraged, i lose her with this rhyme
Until the reader weeps
For the memories he keeps.
Our boldest Broadway show
That youth stole
Long ago.
