Memory Lane

Life comes so suddenly,

Capturing you before you know it.

Love, ambition, hope, fear.

A test of everything you hold dear.

There comes a time when things, only happen in the past,

And everything is too good to last.

A time when you are left with more memories than you can hold,

And you speak of life as an adventure untold.

A moment of victory and sorrow,

And all you want is another life to borrow.

Familiar faces fade away,

In a rear view mirror that has too much to say.

People come and they go, but these streets never change.

It’s no wonder that memory is a lane.

    1. Hey there 🙂 you might have just made my day. Yes it has been way too long Bharath. I am looking to upgrade my website and buying a domain. As soon as I have my plan on wordpress upgraded and everything else figured out (hopefully a week) you will see my posts filling up your feed. 🙂 Thank you so much for commenting. I really appreciate this.

  2. You’ve truly captured life and memory lane in such a short poem – we continue to pack our memories in suitcases which we carry with us as we often mourn those missed adventures. Great poetry!
