What If: Not a Poem

What if I could bring back all that you’d forgotten? Will you smile then, run in fields of glory, be the child bathed in laughter?

Piece by piece assemble the memories of past joys and sorrows. Unveil faded images, lost and now found. Bring back Summers of familial bliss.

Offer a brief glimpse of smiles thrown beguilingly, of tears shed in anger, of sighs whispered in solitude under star laden skies.

You look at me with hope, a witness to the magician’s art, anticipation growing. What next you ponder, what next to emerge from thin air and dreams?

Such are the things memories are made of. The passage of time wears heavy on the tracks of our lives.

All is not lost, what if I could bring back all that you’d forgotten? Will you smile then, run in fields of glory, be the child bathed in laughter?

  5. A touching wander through the mists of time, those lovely days so tantalizingly close…the magic of past summers becoming fairytales for us to linger over…beautifully captured!
