Memories Of Old

I knew he wouldn’t remember
I told him the truth
He had forgotten it all
Nothing I said mattered anymore
He was a lost cause
I didn’t think he would be
It took a million tries
He still didn’t budge
I know he thinks about it
Day and night
That secret it lies deep
It cut his soul deep
He travels alone down that dirt road
Not knowing where to go
His memory is so old
His life is no longer there
His mind is hazy
It’s totally gone
He lies in the ground now
Nothing has been so serene
When his memories grew old
He grew older too
Now I watch my life go by
The same exact way
Old memories seem far away
They are almost gone now
When they go
I wish to go too
Never mind how it should be
I don’t want to hear it
Just before it happens
I hope you read this
As your memories grow old
You will too
His memories grew old
I did too just days after
So will you

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
