Live in My Memories

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


Remembering days that used to be,

days of you and me,

a love that golden shone,

when we were young

and in love.

How time has flown,

like birds across the skies,

our love wasn’t meant to be

it was pure and it did shine,

but the hands of time,

put us on different paths.

I let you go,

though tears misted my eyes,

the sun disappeared from the skies

and to keep on searching for rainbows -

come live in my memories.

Now my best friend,

has become the photo album,

well worn with time,

where you smile, you wave

and most of all you love me.

Beneath the stars above,

when the moon plays with shadows,

when my mind begins to wander,

it brings back all those love songs-

meant just for you and me.

I always thought,

it was a love meant to be,

I try to follow you,

to see where the road might lead,

but I know it won’t be to your front door.

I still love you,

but it is no longer me you adore,

I guess we’re really through -

come live in my memories.

Most people can relate to this. It’s not always easy to move on from a relationship that has ended.

Some very life-like memories. Charming piece!
