These Red Brick Walls

These red brick walls have stood for nearly 100 years,
they have seen and absorbed happiness and tears,
if these walls could talk, just imagine what they could say,
a lifetime of cherished memories have not faded away.

I wonder, if 100 years from now, will I still be around,
maybe a part of my secrets will be waiting to be found,
my written words are embedded in the room where I slept,
all of those midnight thoughts and dreams will be here kept.

The window that brought new inspirations into my soul,
and the closed door that opened to my heart's empty hole,
from the wooden boards of the floor and up to the ceiling,
these walls of red bricks hold secrets that need revealing.

    Very nice write Kelly. I had my house built on virgin land, but i reckon many Kangaroos slept there in the past LOl. I really enjoyed this magical poem, my friend...peter

    A phrase comes to mind : The ghost of immortality. I think that since we are really only passing through, we seek to be remembered, each in our own small ways contributing to leaving evidence of our sojourn. If only ancient walls could talk ! Kelly, this is vibrant and very well may become part of your own little corner in literary heaven. I love it !

    Secrets that need revealing hey... Very nice. :o) Thank you for your kind comments on my poems. I found myself reading over some of your older writes, and noticed that I already commented on a few of them.

    This is beautiful, Kelly; I am sure that many of us will relate to these lines. No doubt that the poetic spirit will cling to those walls and perhaps inspire others who in time will be lucky enough to 'share' your room. Most of all touched by the final stanza! // paul

    Great poem! I wonder too what might be left of us in 100 years, if anything. I like the feeling in your write, really suits the questions raised.

    WOW, Kelly, I am sure a part of you will still be around. A fine print, to press against them 100 years red bricks... Secrets above secrets, i love the stack them up imagery... always~ Linda
