Memories





            In a corner of a pleasant wood
            Shimmering with sparkling waters stood
            A languid pond, resplendent in the daylight -
            It shimmered to the light, unmindful of my plight.
            While I here reminisce, wanting to go back-
            To be once more charmed by what I lack.
            But I cannot go back, for there someone
            Had built a wall so tall I’m undone.
            The past and the present cannot meet
            I cannot go back or my memories greet
            I must sit here and write to dreams goodbye 
            and end my days upon a sigh.

    Picturesque images of a sylvan pond and your introspection.

    Enjoyed reading this one..Sometimes when one gets old or has a form of dementia, it probably seems as if they have a high wall blocking out all good memories..Thanks for stopping by.Sara
