My Past in Peace

One day, I’d like to go
In search of my past,
Of the memories
Of a misspent youth;
I cry for my souvenirs,
I dream of a beautiful future,
Where I can atone
For all my follies,
And contemplate my past
In peace at long last.

We all deserve some solace, it remains to be seen whether I shall find it though, indeed whether any of us do, I am so pleased you like this so much, Teddy, I have said it before, I love your comments, so encouraging, it's good to know I am inspiring you, that means more than words can say. Carl.
