Memories Of the Sweetest Melodies
Smiles and sunshine greet you every day,
All while I’m trying to keep the hurt and pain away.
We live apart, only connected by the memories,
But locked in my heart are the sweetest melodies.
Those we used to sing along, dance along,
Everyone used to say that we just belong.
La, la, la the world turns; life goes on,
Laughing to cover up that “we” is gone.
I ain’t writing to a lost love …
Just remembering those sent from above.
Originally, the poem was about a friend who moved away during middle school. Now every time I read it, the lines pretty much relate to any close friend I’ve lost contact with over the years.
