You have written a song the wistful heart sings to the soul in the sad passing of days. 'Dream and dreams come back to me... .' Excellent.

This is well written with much depth and somehow filled with alot of anxiety of a time in life when it was not as happy. However none the less, you have captivated the mind with the vivid imagery that you have spilled into a vision of a time when suddenly you are happy to have a choice to forget or remember. Writen very well and enjoyed this much.
