Valentine Memory


Idealize a memory
Only a fool would do such things
A voice this day five years ago
Mattered coincidentally
Don't look back, don't do that now
Hard to steer that way
If one is to move forward
Keep eyes on the road ahead
Funny how everyone rushes to buy and pay others to cook
On a day when a few moments precious
Was all it took
A simpleton yes I've been told
Not even one for jewelry
The part the can't be bought
Is what I keep for me
Rocks from walks with my children
Saved in a pan
Adventures remembered full of dreams
In a jar filled with Florida sand
Don't know why I thought that I would change with each Degree
Maybe the mocking of my simple ways made me believe
But I look around and these silly things
Are among what I would grab in a fire
Before turning back to where I should
I remember the year I received my hearts desire

    Fear not those that mock, for they walk a thin line of a tightrope... (who said that... oh I just did with my outside voice) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
