Sometimes A Memory…

Sometimes a memory rises into my consciousness
my father singing some odd song in my youth
his prime of life.

It hits me like a physical blow
making me wonder: Was it real or imagined?

Sometimes an old song rises inside me
I have find it
hear it
sing it like a fool laughing because some of my youth just returned in a memory!

Sometimes a memory rises
punching the backs of my eyes making the tears flow…
Oh mother
oh father
oh long ago friend
Oh how the pain of leaving you in the past is so painful.

Sometimes a memory,
makes me wonder if I am just old
an amnesiac or
a forgetful old bastard.

Sometimes the pain of resurrected memories and lives inside alive again,
makes me understand,
why….(Crying) …
oh WHY I let them all go…
