Old memories

I hear a familiar voice
And for a few minutes
Life wasn’t unbearable
We don’t speak the same words
But the meaning rang true

We exchanged greetings
The only way we could
And I knew it had been too long
I wondered how you’d been
And what’s new with you

Strangers coming back together
Again on the same frequency
Forgetting life’s trials
Like two stars in the nighttime sky
Immortal to none but ourselves

I never forgot
Neither did you
Living in old memories
And keepsakes from the past
Until we meet again.

  1. Loved this!

    Btw, just a little heads up, you might need to edit your Gravatar or profile or something (not sure exactly which), because it points to a URL that no longer exists (jasonsullivan.wordpress.com I think), and people who are looking to get to your site by clicking on your profile won’t be able to do so.

    Hope it helps!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it, Stuart!

      Thanks for the heads up on that link! I thought I had fixed that months ago. Maybe not. I think it’s fixed now. If you happen to see other stuff like that, feel free to let me know!
