I remember a time
long ago
in a galaxy far far away
where I met some friends
at a house on Baker Lane
it was a wild time
a weekend of fun and scrabble
forever etched in time

Lord how that Jag looked sweet
as I think about the time
that's forever dripped past

years have faded beyond the horizon
hair fallen out and going grey
marriages made, broken, and reformed
children get older as time goes by

but it's nice to remember the times when I was free
all the memories and friends
places we went and dreams we shared
it's all forever etched in stone
the time I spent
on Baker Lane

Ah, but you are still indeed free. Free to remember, free to grow... And I'm sure they are indeed fond memories. Peace...

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

You expressed this time so well.  I hope we all have those "Baker Street" Memories.  Great poem.

Your poem made me think of my "Baker Lane." Thanks for the memories. An enjoyable read.

bumping this one for two friends to see
the wonderful memories you shared then
and the new ones you can make now
