Treasure Island

Johancy Phillips

(November 6,1995 / Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas)

Times Gone By


fading pictures
at a glance
of long lost memories
that had a chance

the dreams and hopes
that you once had
are gone forever
behind the thin glass

the mirror paints a picture
of what you are now
but behind it's reflection
you haven't changed somehow

and if you think
that these dreams are gone, missed
stay with me
and I'll show you they exist

    Lovely meanderings about regrets and wailing on the past. I think this is very across the board. feelings we all have about loss. I like how you ended it with hope and a future instead of past tripping all the way through. (Report) Reply

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
