Just An Old Memory
By: Wayne Brown
Wheels came off; things fell apart
Over; finished; written in stone
As if it never happened; gone
Old memories of a broken heart
What once was love, now broken; sad
Lying in pieces like bits of trash
Remnants marking the lover’s crash
Old memories of a love gone bad
Was it you, me, or was it just us?
Stubborn and blind; not willing to bend
Wanting the other to give in the end
Old memories written in the dust
You went your way; I went on mine
Our paths to never cross again
Our fate cast out to a wayward wind
Old memories reflecting in the wine
Do you ever ‘what if or just wonder?
How different it might have been together
How different if only for what if or whether
Old memories of a love cast asunder
Life goes on; we find our different ways
Patch our lives together; heal and smile
Put our heartaches away in a closed file
Old memories stored of love’s early days
There are no answers; maybe it was fate
That our live separated; came totally undone
Now we don’t’ remember who lost or won
Old memories of love erased from the slate
I remember how it started; remember it broke
The love we shared; precious, precious time
Before the undoing; back when things were fine
Old memories of love gone up in wisps of smoke
Time long passed; gone way from love’s eyes
Hidden in dust from the view; filed away from sight
Long passed the point of who was wrong or right
As an old memory of love fades and slowly dies
