A Spring in Winter

Time has changed as the wind takes away some things..
There are so many good times shared but a few still sing..
The streets are empty where we once walked and got lost..
The chairs and tables are away and on the cafe door a light frost..
My stomach drops a bit as each turn I take spring comes back..
The people have gone from the dock where we shared cocktails
and oysters for a snack..
I don't regret an hour, a minute or a second of a time when it 
was just us..
But life came through the door and all was wiped away by words
and a love lost..
Whatever is gained or lost though time , moments we shared can't
be taken away..
Thank you so much for coming across my mind and making me
smile on this winter day..

this reminds me of something going on in my life...this guy told me he loved me and then pretty much threw me away like a piece of trash for someone who hurts him...everything remind me of him...and no matter what i do i cant get him out of my head....i soend so many nights up thinking about him...but i also found someone who acts like he cares...lets just hope im right and its not just another way to break my heart...agian...i dont know if i can take another

A beautiful write on memories treasured Michael.. Sometimes they just pop up out of the blue and bring a smile to your face.. That's why I reckon the good times should be treasured whether things worked out or not.. love Wilma
