Out of the corner of my eye
I glimpse a memory
Fleeting moments of a life
I barely remember

The house of my dad
The place where we would play
The street I walked to school
A blurry memory in my mind

A time of innocent enjoyment
Carefree walks to school
Special visits with Dad
Walks with grandma

How can I remember?
It feels like a lifetime ago
A different life perhaps
Another person

I’ve changed in so many ways
Looking with wonder at the past
How was I so resigned to it?
Accepting the path with ease

Small moments of changing the path
Generally pulling away
Preferring isolation
The safety in my own mind the safest

Avoidance was the tactic
But not the best method
Still so much to learn

Was rambling about in the den here and ran across this gem. It reminded me of those times shortly after I left for military service and returned. Great write with an easy flow and grand imagery.
