    Dim Memories

    So quickly does a quarter century
    Seem like a long time ago
    And having lost so many friends
    You’ve seen the memories grow.
    Some of those you knew so well
    Have certainly now gone mad
    And everywhere you look you see
    The life that you never had.

    Did you actually do this or that
    Or was it a fantasy?
    Did you really know that person
    Or make up a reality?
    Is it true you were a witness
    Or was it something someone said?
    Do you really know what occurred
    Or did you make it in your head?

    You’ll recall what you remember
    You can make the pieces fit
    Even when the memories
    Become so dimly lit
    That years ago is yesterday
    A dream you had last night
    Everything old is new again
    Within tomorrow’s light.

    Dim ole Memories...the Good, the Bad and the Ugly
    memories we choose to remember...some we choose to remember to :bullseye: forget.
    It's true indeed that every TODAY...will be TOMORROW'S memory.
    So true, there's nothing new under the sun
    and what you think is new...has already been done!

    Awesome piece poet...right on time

    Yes some memories are indeed true, and others, well, perhaps some poetic license was taken. I enjoyed this oldsoul.
