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
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 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,
oh WHY I let them all go…
