Memory Walk

Memory Walk

Holding onto old-time love.
Fits like a glove.
Keeps repeating.
My heart beating.

What’s wrong with trying once again?
Go where we’ve been
Repeat old fun
that’s come undone.

Photos fall from hidden folder.
Getting older,
I put away
the bygone day.

    Thanks for re-posting this Judy, while reading it, I felt that I must have been there before, and it turns out that it is one of those that I put into my “keeper file”. Often I am reminded that each of us travel down nostalgic paths that at times seem similar and we think, “Hay have I been down this path, it seems so familiar”~! Your “Memory Walk” reminded me of this at a time that I have been been feeling down due to my own past memories of my path traveled.

    If I lived closer, I’d bring Zoe by for a visit.. You’d be cheered up one way or another.. by her visit or her departure!!! She always cheers me, even though she bit my lovely artisan pipe in two and ate the birds off the corners this morning…
