    inspired by Heartbeat's "Another Time, Another Place"


    I went up there again,
    in search of everything she is

    for everything she was
    is held like the best kept
    secret in the thick of the
    mountain trails

    I marvel at what the serenity
    of a sunset says about her

    And how, after all these years
    she moves me, just the way
    she did when she was barely
    out of high school

    Unwise to the ways of the world
    but so skillful in the art of love
    this sensuous young girl

    I went up there again,
    in search of everything I lost

    for everything I lost is
    trapped in a capsule of time
    that I’m bound to find
    if I keep looking

    We didn’t stumble upon
    each other
    although there are times
    I wish…our worlds
    had not collided

    but I have since decided

    that the raindrops that fell
    atop the mountain
    repeated the story of
    the first time,
    in the shower, we made love

    and the tenderness
    I felt for her, inside
    as she clung to me and
    softly cried…

    And the brilliant sunset
    forever speaks of the
    warmth of her body
    the blush of her cheeks

    I went up there again,
    in search of everything she was
    everything she is

    to re-live a moment in time
    and try to set it free

    blessed is the man that is trying to free himself
    from what the rest of the world is seeking

    hope to see you at the party!

    yes...

    loved reading this...
    as we all return time
    and time again...
    to what was
    what could have been
    and what will never be...

    yet, the walk down memory lane...priceless joy!

    write it man~

    BE have a way of inspiring people in this way...

    this PEACE took me back to a place...a time...a special person that i will always remember in a special way...who helped me to be the man i've come to be.

    that's for stirring the pot, Bert. beautiful memories should be reflected on.
