Nostalgia

A Poem By Wings of Eternity // 9/30/2016

I saw you today
Unrecognizable,
and yet so familiar,
crimson and blue,
brown and tan,
building a wall,
and a bridge
on my heart.

My,
how far we’ve come!
I miss you sometimes,
but not too often
Just in the night
when I dream,
I dream of you,
of laughter
of love
and of moments shared.

I saw you today
and I went right by.
The ache is gone,
replaced with wonderment
of how just much
you meant to me
during that time.
And how all of that
is now gone.

A lifetime ago,
it seems,
a lifetime lived
in only a few years.
You’re now forever
in my heart,
But not forever
on my mind.
You’re Nostalgia,
and that’s okay
with me.

"The lines and verses are only the outward garments of the poem and are no more really it than your ruffles and flounces are YOU. The real poem is the soul within them . . . and that beautiful bit is the soul of an unwritten poem. It is not every day one

Thanks Damaris :)

This is great! Loved the

This is great! Loved the colors, the feeling, the sentiment. Totally thought it was about a guy until I saw the commentary ;) And it's funny, the triplet of posts we have up right now -- mine is about nostalgia/loss, and Homey's ends with something "not being okay". They all flow together. You've written a beautiful piece!
