Memories

Rating: 4.9
Voices whisper through the ether
All that's past, so long ago,
Memories of distant places
Some forgotten, some to know

I recall those days of splendour
When the world was deemed sublime
When the cherry blossom lingered
In my heart and fixed in time

Love was young and life eternal
Rich the wine from ag'ed vines
Fresh the wind and sweet the honey
Warm the sun that ever shines

But through time such mem'ries languish
Fading with the dying sun
Many gone, no more to cherish,
Past, forgotten, ever done

Now the night grows darker, darker,
Long the shadows cast below
Cold the sun and deep the waters
As through all the valleys flow

Recollections there as phantoms
Fixed within illusions' store
All things lost and all things broken -
Memories forevermore

We cling to the memories Val. They contain the essence, not of what we were, but the essence of what made us what we are. Sometimes they may overwhelm us in nostalgia, but we must regret nothing. The days of splendour, the times of laughter, these will sustain us no matter how dark the present may be. This is a beautiful poem, heartfelt, written with deep emotion and definitely one to keep. Hugznstuff.

Some things we'd wish to remember and some things we'd wish to forget, so fading memories are both a curse and a blessing.

Memories are what we hold on to, they can make us cry make us happy, they can put a smile on our face for the day. A fantastic poem.
