Retracing the past
where dear memories bloomed
as moments shared
filled with colours of love,
friendship and innocence

The best years of my life
are in my youth
when my body is filled
with more vigor
and the heart is fresh
with hope and dreams
for the future

I wonder about old friends
who once stood by my side.
Its long since we have parted.
Each of us, finding our own paths
to embrace our ambitions.
I hoped our paths will meet
for it felt as if our reunion
has been long-overdued

Sighing, I faced the sky
sending my prayers
and well wishes to the wind
for the friends I have lost
through time
yet always there
in my mind

I owe it to people like you. Each time I feel like I want to stop writing all I have to do is read your works and revive that old dream and I started to write again. Anyway I'm glad you like this one. Thanks for the visit.

I am a simple poet

One that we have been waiting for.
Good words, careful thoughts, and a great theme.
Welcome to another level,
Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Let's hope that I can keep this up shall we?
