One day I went back
In my mind
To uncover the memories
I would find

Dreams of days
Long gone by
Of tears
And sorrow
And laughter too

And then there's you
Always you
That first love
Of long ago

That first smile
And kiss
How I longed
To be with you

All's been taken by time
Far away now
Days long gone
Just dusty relics

-In my mind

I know the feeling. I wrote my first poem on here called "Poem for Megan" which expresses the same emotion. Eventually we must move on somehow or remain chained to the past - it is not easy I know. - nice write.

I treasure all the relics of my mind. Memories to me are so precious. I no longer see them as I did through the eyes of the one living them but through the eyes of the one that lived them. Well donewine
