I have taken a dip

In the pool of yesterdays

Memories swirl

And coalesce

They ripple and collide

With my dreams of yore


I am swimming

In the lake of yesterday

Where tears and laughter

Reside side by side

Faces and names

Of people long gone


I am treading water

In the sea of yesterday

Where all my tomorrows

Waited to be known

Soon to join

The tides of the past


I am seeking shelter

in the oceans of my memories

there is comfort in the past

and understanding perhaps

as I wander through

the rivers of yesterday



This was inspired by Edward Roads at

You should check him out. Quite inspiring!
