Golden bits of dust ,from a glorious past,
lost in the winds of memory , of moments that last,
for years in the hazy and shadowy alleys of the mind,
flecks of existence that were left behind,
in the desperate effort to find a better tomorrow,
shimmering reflections in the lake of the heart,
lost in the depths, in the search of a fresh start.
A whirlwind of thoughts comes to me today,
stirs something inside me that longs to get away.
something old,ancient , in the labyrinths of my brain,
that threatens to change all i know ,and drive me insane.
they say you reap as you sow,
i believe as it all comes back to me now,
everything i lost in the struggle against time,
as my vision was distorted and blurred with grime,
of my own false belief and an illusion of success,
in a mad race for what i thought was happiness.
today as all falls silent, my ambitions come to rest,
I realize, the memories of you are my real treasure chest.
