From There To Here

From There To Here

Sometimes in dreams my youth returns
with visions from my past
Cascading stream of memories
I watch until the last

The rebel from so long ago
reminds me of my loss
The things I used to cherish most
and what ambitions cost

In moments when my friends arrived
my heart would leap within
The faces from so long ago
and what we could have been

We’d sing the ballads of the day
and dance to Carry On
While love was coming to us all
in time it all was gone

How did I get from there to here?
Why did my values change?
If I could now go back in time
so much I'd rearrange

    Barbara...I keep trying to tell myself its all about the mind and how you feel up there but me thinks that is another rabbit trail :) Have a great day...Jon

    We have our memories to keep us warm, every day is an opportunity to rekindle the fire, praying that you do, xxx

    Jon, this has a lovely lyrical quality to it as well as being so nostalgic. I really like this kind of message in a poem.
