Memories And Dreams

My memories creep all around me

Like vines on an old brick wall

Some are sweet, some are sour

But they all make me feel so small

Lost in a sea of nostalgia.

Some memories keep me up at night

Haunting my dreams with all their might

They tug at my heart and won’t let go

Leaving me restless, filled with woe

Oh, how I wish they’d just let me go.

But then there are dreams of the future

A place where my heart takes nurture

Where the sun shines bright and the sky is blue

There all my worries are bid adieu

A place where my dreams will surely come true.
