By Aarron Mondello


The past lingers on
In dreams and in song
In nightmares sent to haunt
Be they good or bad
Merry or sad
Memories can sting and taunt

The first forbidden kiss
A moment of sensual bliss
The day your heart was broken
The sun in her hair
His skin glistening fair
Dark deeds left ever unspoken

A strangers smile
The bursting joy while
You first hold a squirming babe
The sadness deep
That makes loved ones weep
As a life begins to fade

In our minds
Walk images of time
Memories build us high
In our hearts
Light and dark
Until we ascend into the sky.
