Taking This Emotional Roller Coaster Ride

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.

Let’s take this emotional roller coaster ride,

remember the days that have been

and smile like yesterday

and dream your days away.


Let’s take our days one by one,

treasuring each moment

and storing away memories,

held dearly in the heart.


Let’s treasure our family and friends,

remember each precious time,

when together were we,

as though this was our last day.


Let’s take this emotional roller coaster ride,

retrace the steps where moments once began.

Remember the love we share

and dance by the light of the moon.


Never look back -

there’s a new tomorrow,

full of new promise,

let’s smile our days away.


Let’s hold on to sweet memories

and love like there is no tomorrow.

Just enough for today,

with plenty of songs along the way.


Let’s step back into the time of our youth,

play the songs that we once loved

and dance throughout the day –

for there is so much to say.


Was that step a misstep,

today it no longer matters,

swings can still take us to the stars –

whenever we want to make one ours.


The bridges we burned behind us once,

can still be retraced,

if we believe that we –

left the best part of us behind.


Someday the two of us,

might have to part,

life is just that way,

but to hide the heartaches –

the brightest of memories is a good place to start.


Let’s take this emotional roller coaster ride,

be wild and crazy -

because life is so short

and it offers so very much.

      I applaud all these sentiments. We need to cherish every moment, do as many things as we can, make the most of it all and keep all the memories close. Beautiful poetry!
