A Walk In The Mind - Poem by William K Duncan

Where I am is not where you are nor anywhere you can be
Where I am to you is far but as close as I can see

I sit here in my homeland far from home
I sit here still, quite and alone

Here I have peace as still as a pond
Here there is shelter and of this comfort I'm fond

My memories in the distance sit here by my side
Dreams of the future are my guide

I take my home with me, everywhere I go
And whatever life gives me, I use what I know

I sail from one place to another
Shifting effortlessly as a cloud
I tie places together
Like faces to a crowd

Here I am dancing, and I laugh and play
Here I play alone, content to spend all day

Here time is timeless and what's fast is slow
Here time is boundless and shifts to-and-fro

Some things don't matter, times, places, even people come and go
But some things change forever, everything we know

Some say a memory is nothing, but a nothing I can touch
But nothing amounts to nothing, and could never feel so much

A million pieces locked away
A million pieces here to stay
A thousand hello's, a thousand goodbye's
A thousand cheers, a thousand cries

Turn around to an open door
And what was past is no more
