Upon reflection
I lay back,
Pausing in my recollections
Of distorted memory
Taking time,
To regain my senses
And ease my mind
Like some fantasy,
I try, and Iíve tried
To relive old days
To make things right,
As they used to be
But I learned,
That those days,
Days for which I yearn;
Again, will never be

It's good to learn from the past, not try to relive it or live in it.

nice poem I've often wondered if I could go back and re-live times when memories were so grand but I'm afraid that once their the memories would lose their luster and I'd be terribly dissapointed

theres that word fantasy again...

I like it when you lay back and ponder those deep thoughts...(smile)
stalking you still, jm


 you're really alone at last...
you're bored and fading fast,
if it's true you'll fall from the past
all you'll have to do is ask
you'll feel but never be
you want and always need
price you pay for wanting to see
will you have all you've ever dreamed...
