Deep Inside My Mind

I Am Clearing All The Cobwebs Out

There comes a time where we find something that was hidden

It was always there but never needed or given much thought

A memory of years passed that brought us joy

A once in a lifetime thrill that stays with us still

Times that we have lived and shared with others

Only to be put on the back burner with one pilot still lit

How can we reach all those thoughts

Bring them to life and relive their happiness once again

To spark a flame that has died

To bring out a friend who has gone out of sight

To listen to a story told many times often in the past

Like a state of the art camcorder with blue ray

Where have those memories been hidden

Remove the dust and give a wipe

I see sunshine where there was nothing but darkness

I see thoughts that travel the speed of light

I have reached a part of me that few have traveled

I can open up a can of wonderful adventures

That Huck Finn would be amazed

Nothing is gone just resting in a far off corner

Few have time since they think all that is important is what they see

Not the years that made them happy

Not the memories that gave them the precious knowledge

That they use everyday without thought

The twelve years of school that you had to go and college after that 

With some of the greatest friends you will ever know

Technology is incredible

But until they can go into my every past memory

I will never be totally satisfied

I enjoy life now and want to bring on the memories that have faded

I want to bring the guts and glory out

These are the memories that mean the most

Not endless hours of t.v. and repeated negative thoughts

That trick my mind into watching and not thinking

If I was blind would I be doing the same thing that others do

Or would I be searching for a memory of a loved one or a special time that I once new

Beautiful as always Dream On. Every moment of our lives is recorded so wonderfully in our minds. A sudden recognition can replay those memories like a video. We have so many special moments in our lives and those really important people or events in our lives will always be there for us to recall.

Ok Dream on, so seeing the word Deep in the title then thought,and JOY, a few paragraphs down I see "To spark a flame that has died" and "To bring out a friend who has gone out of sight"hmmm (For some strangr reason) all this knowledge that I acquired in my five years/sorry six years of school lol, told me ooohhh know here he gose again using his subliminal, Jedi mind tricks on us again, haha, but then I read on, and thought hmmm na this guy is a pretty good writer, and these are some beautiful words he has just written here for all of us...

just thought I would say this before I crawl back into my shell of obscurity

Please don't hide come out all the time and share what wonderful thoughts you offer.I have never taken any writing courses in college.I have only taken business courses and the English classes found me as a run on master.My thoughts were always all over the place.I never found the time to write for others just myself.Thanks for sharing and helping.
