Years Gone By

 

Oh I took a look at a picture of us

that was taken so long ago it seems.

Though it was just the other day

that we had last chatted (Was it?).

 

I have aged so much

in the last 15 years.

How young and gay

we used to look.

 

We would party

and I had my Jack Daniels

bottle in my hand.

 

Lo and behold

I was a drunken soul.

How would any of us

ever see our fates.

 

One day would change my life

and I would live in a nightmare.

We used to laugh and get drunk.

 

Now I cry alone.

 

Where did all the tears

come from.

I was in a accident

that forever

would haunt me.

 

I find friends of old on the net.

It doesn't seem to matter anymore.

 

Even thru the years

we still had hearts

that will always care.

 

Years gone by

like a dime spent

in a candy machine.

My life was used up

being tossed in the garbage

being remembered only by a few.

Victor the poem talk about your melancholly. It is sad and sensitive poem. It is well written - wonderfully written.

The inspiration made the right thing. Memories are making wonders.

 

Thank you for sharing this poem with us - there is much inside.
