Memories Lane

Memories Lane

A Poem by Rita L. Sev
"

...

"

While taking a familiar stroll

Along a well-worn way

I found my heart had wandered,

My thoughts had gone astray

 

One path led to lush, green fields

So fresh with fewer years;

And then I found a somber place,

A rain forest of tears

 

We never know where we might go

Traveling this terrain;

Each moment in the Past’s a pause

We take on Memories Lane

I have a friend who's moving four years after her hubby died & I know she'll be taking much longer than she plans, going thru things, remembering . . . just like in your beautifully-written poem. The middle stanza is especially strong, the way you describe the stark contrast between our happy memories & our regrets. So true-to-life, relatable, & original-sounding.
