I started my walk down memory lane139Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwbQ1WlKPTd
With a skip in my step and a grin.
I had no idea just how much pain
Was waiting for me within.
139Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIGjSthTcLi
I didn't realize that all things have ends;
I was too busy thinking of
Visiting all my childhood friends
And the places I used to love.
139Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXPtUZ6oq6B
I think of all the tales I could tell
Of people who are gone.
Of things that broke and buildings that fell.
Oh, the memories go on and on.
139Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKDMBFIXqyQ
The parks I played at when I was small
Are rusted, broken, and gone.
Everything that seemed so tall
Got shorter as the years went on.

I wander the halls of my high school
Noting the changes within.
It almost seemed like a joke, so cruel
That it wasn't the way it had always been.

As I continue on my way
What I see fills me with dread:
Rows and rows of stones of gray,
Engraved with the names of the dead
139Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ52FRDlAAL9
I see the name of my favorite preacher
And my friend who died too soon.
A simple stone for my first grade teacher,
Who sat with me at noon.

My childhood house is burned to the ground.
My best friend's porch is a pile of wood.
And as I look around,
I realize only the memories are good.
139Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEWnwKtnEYF
All the physical things are gone.
Only In my mind shall they remain.
So as my life goes on
I will continue to visit memory lane.
