Where gone the sweet recollections?
The jewels that make our days devine -
Now lost within apprehension.
Where gone the sweet recollections?
And they come with good intentions
To find a mind that isn't mine.
Where gone the sweet recollections?
The jewels that make our days devine.

    Excellent Craig as always we chose a topic the masses are not enamored of so a lower rank is received, enough of love and its loss I say, and knights in shining armor, tell me of the scab, Oh say...the harder truths that plague the day! Congrad's on your win. Light & Love

    "a mind that isn't mine" --that is scary... I wonder what it feels like to live with Alzheimers. This was sad but beautiful. Nice memorable lines here too. Always, Laura

    Popped in to visit your poems today Craig... well worth it for this read.. such a scary thought .. Alzheimers. Not a great way to spend ones aged years. If not our memories, what else could we have to hold on to.
