Back Roads Of My Mind Poem by David Harris

Back Roads Of My Mind

Rating: 5.0

Your memories fill each waking hour
You face fills each and every thought
Of the times we had together
That surface from the back roads of my mind

I remember the fields of bluebells
Where we used to walk hand in hand
The trees we used to lean upon
While we rested for a while

All these things and more linger for eternity
And you will find them
Written with a special love
On the back road of my mind

They were written with love’s pen
And if you look close into my eyes
You will see them there all the time
Written on the backs roads of my mind

Your memories are anchored there
Never straying away
Resting with love forever
On the back roads of my mind

D, thank you for pointing this out to me. Yes, it is beautiful. The road analogy works well, in both ways (the mental mapping and the physical adventure) . Finely composed, masterfully controlled pen. t x

David, this is so very beautiful, I can see why you thought I would like it. It has the bluebells and the trees in there, of course the parts that got me weren't the stunning scenery but the emotion and the sentiments conveyed throughout. Brought a little tear to my eye yet I enjoyed reading it immensely. HG: -) p.s can't find the 'All roads lead to you'..... am I blind? ?

I love how you defined those old storehouses we keep in our heads as 'the back roads of our minds'. What a cool way of putting it. I adored this piece, as it made me take a little walk down the 'back roads' of my own mind. Thanks for the wonderful poem!
