Everywhere You Look


Today I have looped a big circle around this town
Every place I passed, there was a memory to be found
Memories of good. Some, of Bad.
Memories so strong. Of good times had.
Memories of what once was but now it is not
Memories of lost friends you think about alot
On the train we passed, acres of tombstones
Thousands and thousands of memories there - these people are not alone
Every where I looked there was something new to be seen
Then every where I looked, memories of where I had been
So every where I looked I had to remind me that this is it
I can't change a thing, Not one little bit
So every where you look, remember there is always more
Just waiting for you. For you to explore

    It is true the more we live the more memories we accumulate as do others and lives come and gone, all important. (Report) Reply

    In this pool of memories you swim happily and its ripples touch our feet as we sit keeping our legs down. (Report) Reply

    memories are fourscore, truck loads of cement, and four hundred tons of cold red brick.
    We build the houses in which we live, mansions, shacks, or cardboard bed
    we build by the plans that we have been led
    sometimes make mistakes but someone forgave.
    but the past holds down no secrets of the future
    it's just a quirk of human nature (Report) Reply

    Reminds me of my favourite place where I go to clear my head and think. But it is a place where I have so many good memories from summer holidays. Great poem Lyn (Report) Reply

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
