Memories On My Mind

Those memories, times I’m sure we’ll never forget
Those feelings we can’t put aside
For what we had, sometimes I tried to understand
But it’s so heavy on the mind

The Commodores / Still

I watch a golden leaf fall
Autumn’s glory starting to call
And I’m trapped in the past, a moment set
The heart stops the clock time has met
Those memories, times I’m sure we’ll never forget

It all comes flooding anew in my heart
As though Time itself had not ripped us apart
Memories from when we lain astride
Each whisper, each touch freshly decried
Those feelings we can’t put aside

We weren’t perfect, but each grew stronger
I didn’t expect forever, but certainly longer
Only to have it gone at Fates command
These things I came to learn first-hand
For what we had, sometimes I tried to understand

Oh what I would give to have time slip
And once more have the taste of your lips
The Fates are almost never so kind
And with the moment gone I continue my daily grind
But it’s so heavy on the mind

  1. Cool to start off with a song lyric, then slide into a tight glosa. They say hindsight is always 20/20; perhaps, but as we reflect on any of the regret or sadness in our life, it is hard to elude the hard edge of remorse. I like your lines /memories from when we lain astride/each whisper, each touch freshly decried/those feelings we can’t put aside/.

  2. I watch a golden leaf fall

    I loved this stanza the most… This is probably the most exquisite poem I have ever read!!

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  3. That Commodore line had me clapping. I swooned at the rest. Love just out of grasp is always the love we remember isn’t it? Darn it! 😉

  4. What a lovely glosa ~ I like how you weaved the lines into your sad love experience ~ But that is Fate, and so our journey continues on ~

    Thanks for linking up with D’verse ~
