    Remember When

    A girl sits
    on the shores
    of memory,
    and watches
    the past fly by,


    Caught up
    in the midst
    of a revery,
    she doesn’t notice
    the present cry,




    A cool breeze
    on the golden shore,
    as she knowingly opens
    a once locked door,


    Where past ,
    present ,
    and future
    is swept
    into the current
    where memory slept,




    With her eyes open wide,
    She dives right in…
    And drowns in the tide,
    Of Remember When.

    This is a very good write, and I really liked the flow,the simplicity of it speaks volumes.

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

    Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
