Times to Remember

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


Reflections of you and me,

reflections of how life once used to be,

long ago and far away,

when love was new.

Memories like ripples upon the water,

like waves rushing to the shore,

shadows of yesterdays -

gone in the blink of an eye.

Reflections of the dreams we shared,

things that we dared,

days of quiet silence,

when time seemed to stand still.

Remembering how we used to be,

just you and me,

visions like birds that have taken wing

and have long flown away.

Images in my mind,

photographs of old,

where the faces are so familiar -

the smiles so real.

Reflections of the love we share,

knowing how to turn tears into smiles,

to brush away all the fears

and face a brave, new tomorrow.

Sweet memories,

feeling free to let my love flow,

feeling about me a golden glow,

safe in your warm embrace.

Remembering those we miss,

that once were part of our lives,

learning to go on without them,

just the two of us.

Reflections like rivers flow,

ever rushing onward,

carrying us along -

life’s eternal highway.

First, not to take anything away from your poetry, I feel that Stevie Wonder is a remarkable Grace or unique gift of God.

I love your reflections. Memories are such an important part of our psyche.

You are right Michael. When there I times we have nothing else we do have our memories.

Quite thoughtful. Memories are living part of our earthly journey. Without them life would be unthinkable.
