I’ve been down this road
So many times before
I often wonder if at the end
Will there be an open door?
What seemed to be
What I thought once was
A hopeless dream, in fact
A totally lost cause.
Is now actually a series of events
Coming to fruition
But in a more peaceful, loving
And different rendition.
Is this my chance to try again?
To set things right with my life?
Or is it just a visualization?
Of what could’ve been perhaps an insight?
Only time will tell as the
Fragmented pieces fall into place
Making a difference and a change
In my life as the memories give chase.
Being sure to keep up
Not ever to be missed
But yet called upon at a moments notice
So I can reminisce.
Whenever I feel down and out
Like I lost my friend,
I can reach back into my mind
To smile and laugh once again.
You see, that’s the thing about
Memories both good and bad
They will always be there for you
Whenever you’re happy or sad.
They level the playing field of your mind
Keeping everything on an even keel
Especially those times when
You’re not sure what or how you feel.
Life is full of ups and downs
As well as trials and tribulations
It’s up to us as individuals
To know when and how to set the stipulations.
When we reach that final chapter
And the last page has been turned
You can stop, look back and say
Wow, this is what I’ve learned
Now take this and share it with everyone
Even those you may not know,
So we all as individuals and
A collective will continue to grow.
