A Poem Down Memory Lane
Where does it all go? Time? Life? The older I get, the faster it seems to go. Moments becoming Memories. The future, becoming the present. The present becoming the past. And it happens fast. Before you know it, you find yourself journeying down memory lane, and it seems every trip takes a little longer, and goes a little further. A cascade of hopes and dreams, some accomplished, some not. Good times, bad times, happy times, and sad times. How it’s been on my mind, how it’s been on my mind.
To chart the future, we must know the past. A nostalgia, a longing, for something to grasp. But time’s ever changing, and change always comes. Add all of these moments, your life is the sum.
For some unknown reason, my past has been calling. Perhaps cause my present is shaky and falling? That’s not really true, just how I’m feeling. Cause life in these times is oh so revealing. When I look to the future, I see Love, I see Light. Reminiscing on past shows the Path that is right.
One step at a time, I keep myself moving. Keep myself dancing. I keep myself grooving. This Memory Lane comforts and guides me. Reminds me of strength that I know is inside me.
Now I look ahead, big decisions to make. What ripples will they cause, when so much is at stake? For help with the answers I look to my friends, to my past, to my present, my future, my end. My family, my loves, my knowing, my Spirit. This deep humbling place, so grateful when in it.
So I share all these words, these poetic phrases. These thoughts and these feelings as they move through my being, translated to those that you are now seeing. For me, for you, for all others too, I hope that these words can be helpful. Inspiring perhaps, enlightening maybe? Or just simply playful.
When I look to my past, down memory lane, it helps me to see where I’m going. Reminds me. Rewinds me. Guides me to my inner knowing.
For things that I’ve done and things that I’ve seen, the things that have made me, me. I trust in my present, and in my future. And then I am content to be.
Just as my past has taken care of itself, I know that my future will too. So now I release these thoughts and words, and give them over to you. I am so very curious, where they’ll take you to.
I hope that you discover, your brightness and your light. And when the time is ready, shine, and shine so bright. Continue on your journey, and I’ll continue mine. Walking through this life, one step at a time.
