Time and Memory

And their echoes in our mind

The music’s playing low, a tune from long ago,
as time just drifts away, through the final moments
of the day.

There’s a warm and lazy breeze, and while the music lingers on,
the singer sings a song, and memories flow,
sweet and slow.

The trees move gently in the humid air
as images drift by, a life that might have been
and never was, and now could never be.

Choices cast our life into a certain path
leaving other lives unknown,
unlived.

Doors we never opened, into a life
never experienced.

Images evolve and shift, they slide
and glide and slip away.

Moments pass by too soon,
leaving only half-forgotten memories
like the echoes of a dream.

The music’s playing low, a tune from long ago,
as time drifts slowly through
the final moments
of the day.
