Walking Back

The moon savored the day...
When darkness poured away...
Chills that crawl with motivation...
Bittersweet thoughts of desperation...
I stare down a road where no color has a place...
Where only my eyes could draw and trace...
A picture of brightness where music plays...
Still black and white curtains paint the day...
A song in the distance to far away to hear...
Faint whispers of dreams left to burn without fear...
I continue to walk as the lights go dim...
Back to a place where I had long ago been...

    It is always touching to reminisce and walk back into our past journey, to touch the glories once again with wise eyes and graying hair, just as long as we keep walking frontward on, enjoyed your poem Michael, a pleasure to read your thoughts
