Images in My Mind

Images so many,

flashing through my memory,

rainbow colors –

things that used to be.

Looking through the images,

now flashing upon my computer screen,

the smiles and the happy times,

if I but do a quick blink,

I might see for just a moment –

things happening behind the scenes.

Was that really you and me?

Are mirrored images

just shadows of the past?

if we would step in the photo,

for a short time –

Could we see us as we used to be?

Images take the years away,

slowly bit by bit,

young adults now teens,

you and I it seems,

having a grand old time,

birthday parties

and everyday playing in the sun.

Never you without me,

friends so tried and true,

images stretching across the years –

bringing back special memories.

Can it be that it all passed by

so very quickly?

The laughter and the smiles,

echoing from the past,

teens now children.

When we first met,

first smiles and giggles,

building sand castles,

on the beach,

sharing summer strawberries

and watermelon slices.

Wonder how you are my friend,

would like to go back with you,

back to those childhood summers –

meet me at the sandbox.

Let’s finish that castle,

we’ve been dreaming of

and then in the twilight,

we’ll sip some raspberry wine

and toast to the days,

that used to be,

happy for the friendship,

that we share –

just you and I through the years.
