For the Good Times

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


Little things are the best,

it’s the simple times,

we remember -

better than the rest.

Lazy days when there’s no hurry,

hazy skies with a bit of a mist -

making it seem as though we’re in a fairytale.

We can sit and dream,

watching the clouds drifting by -

as the birds fly through the skies.

Somewhere happy melodies,

bring us many happy memories,

filling out hearts,

with indescribable joy.

Take the good times

and hold on tight,

keep them in your heart,

make a special memory,

because memories like diamonds shine -

long into the darkest night.

Remember the life we’re living,

brings some good times every day,

we can always find a way –

to daydream about a most special time.

When things seem to no longer rhyme

and all you have on your hands is an endless day,

set apart those special moments

and share them with the one you love

and the good times will keep rolling along.

Never set out on a lonely road,

always make sure you have,

a warm hand to hold

so that the night won’t be so cold.

Make wishes upon stars,

from way up high,

for a tomorrow when you won’t be blue

and all of your dreams will really come true.

Sweet poem. We carry memories for a lifetime and, in the end, that is what our lives are made of - good times with good friends and cherished family. Take care.

Simple things and wonderful memories; they can all make us smile when we're down. Focussing on those reminds us that good times can shine through.

Lovely words.
