I don't usually write poetry, it's not my thing. But I couldn't get these words out of my head.
Your face, your smile.
Transcend space and time.
It takes me back to another place.
Which now seems like a distant dream.
When future had no meaning.
And we could live in the moment.
Such peace and tranquility.
To live without grownup fears or responsibilities.
How I long for those days.
And, how you can, so quickly, take me back.
With a glance,
a flicker in time.
I am young again, and so alive.
No weight left on my shoulders.
And, though, it's only for a moment.
Once again I am free.
At total peace.
How I wish I could stay here forever.
Living as the memory of who I was,
that you, still, hold so dear.
Long past, tucked away,
safe in your heart and mind.
Where I am to stay, evermore.
What joy I have knowing I can come back
and re-visit this place.
Every-time I see your smile.
