Retracing My Steps to You

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


Been many years now,

wonder where you’ve gone,

the photo album in my lap -

retracing my steps to you.

Days of sunny weather,

seasons came and went,

all our days together spent –

hand in hand we went.

Perhaps too many times,

the words we shared,

didn’t express how we cared

and now I’d like to make my way back.

Who was right or wrong,

one of us will have to be strong,

finding the love hidden deep inside

and find the path lost along the way

Long into the quiet night,

dreams I cannot stop,

wondering where it all went wrong -

retracing my steps to you.

Each day there is something,

that reminds me of our days together,

when it was so great,

sharing loving smiles.

Gathering my thoughts,

hands upon the keyboard,

thinking of what to say if I should write -

retracing my steps to you.

Would you smile reading my lines,

would you remember as I do,

perhaps a reminder of me to you

and a smiling photograph or two.

But time goes on

and I pen no line,

perhaps one day I’ll gather the courage

and retrace my steps to you.
