Back Roads Of Out Memories

Driving down the back roads of our hearts history
Winding through the threads of memories strings
Looking for that something I’ve lost track of
Wishing for the feeling that it brings

There’s the café where we first ate dinner
The movie house where I held your hand
Ice cream’s still for sale at July’s Drugstore
Though the Drive Ins not there anymore

There’s the park bench where we first kissed
I shook so bad I almost missed your lips
There’s our old high school skating rink
Man, which sure can make me stop and think

There’s the chapel where we said we’d love forever
Close by the cheap hotel where we made love
Our old apartment building on the main street
So cold I used to have to warm your feet

I wish this place didn’t hold such sweet memories
Sometimes I wish the town would disappear
Driving back-road memories all alone without you
Threads keep breaking no matter what I do.

I too only have memories left of my Tom. Found a note in his handwriting today as unpacked from the move. Very touching indeed and his way of letting me know he was with me all the way while alive.

Tender and real, touching and blissful, Felix. Painful to relive the times without the person who created them with you, but good to know the beauty and love that the experiences sowed into your present life to make you who you are today: sensitive and caring - and one who imparts the knowledge and experience of what it means to love deeply. "Better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved - or been loved - at all". Pain can be almost a beautiful and healing thing in itself, I think. LOL Kate xx

heartfelt memories bring out the best in us ...

a very heavyhearted but beautiful pen ...

Felix - I'm with you on the memory trips, and how they drain you. These are good words, graphic, honest, warm and loving. It is a journey we take alone - perhaps, until we meet another - with whom we feel comfortable and close - in another way. - Cheers, Old Man! - Bill

Those bitter sweet memories. Whether remembering alone or together they are a thing of our past which we carry in our hearts and minds through the rest of our lives. We have to suffer the pain along with the happiness, it is just a way of life. Very well written. Karen

what a bittersweet walk down memory wrote it so well i could feel the pain, whether it was real or imagined.
Reviewed by Judy Lloyd (Reader) 2/20/2005
Many times I find myself going down these backroads in reality and in memory. Sometimes it is painful but then it is also helpful to remember.
Reviewed by Dave Harm 2/20/2005
Actually seeing memories created by two... but only by oneself... is a pain, which everyone can feel... a lot of courage to do it
Reviewed by Sherry Heim 2/20/2005
A melancholy write, Felix. It is never easy to relive memories that mean so much and not be able to share them with the person you made them with. This poem cuts like a knife and leaves the sting of a broken heart still worn upon the sleeve.
Take care,
