Drifting In A Memory (poem)

Updated on July 27, 2015

Sipping in what used to be

Past has come to comfort me

Whispering a melody

Through a window none can see

Promising to set me free

Drifting in a memory


Sitting in a lonely room

Laughter now replaced by gloom

Hope is now a distant bloom

Sacred scent of lost perfume

Sipping in what used to be

Drifting in a memory


Once again I feel her kiss

Once was me contained in this

My soul forever lost in bliss

And for this all else dismiss

Past has come to comfort me

Drifting in a memory


Once again I hold her tight

Gazing into distant light

Tomorrow’s dreams held in sight

And my heart she did incite

Whispering a melody

Drifting in a memory


Then came time to say goodbye

Yet there was no need to cry

Hand in hand I soon found why

As together we did fly

Through a window none can see

Drifting in a memory

      When Autumn leaves begin to fall, it's memories we have ... that's all. And if we are blessed, there are writers like you to show us their immense value. I shared this on my FB page so many more folks could enjoy it. You have an extraordinary relationship with words!

      Awesome, melancholy and bittersweet - I often immerse myself in those cherished memories as well.

      Your poem speaks lovingly about memories and the accompanying video takes it even further. "Memories Are Made of This" carries the conceptof memories to a whole 'nother level.
