Sweet Memory (poem)

I stroll the fields we planted yesterday

The blossom of a dream which did come true

The promise of our season seemed to new

Sweet memory we swore won’t slip away


I stroll the fields we worked on through the years

The blossom of a dream which won’t die

The promise of our tears which happened by

Sweet memory our vow now reappears


I stroll the fields which now does seem so strange

The blossom of a dream so long ago

The promise of a time we think we know

Sweet memory has undergone a change


I stroll the fields now on the verge of night

Sweet memory our fairytale unite

Beautiful Martin. I appreciated the Blossom of a dream as it coincided with the fields they tended. And the last line is so subtle, "Sweet memory our fairytale unite."

Lovely poem. Our sweet dreams do change and become nightmares. And then our memories change.
