'silhouettes of all my loved ones from the past were inside . . . '

Down the road less traveled

There is a place with a million

steps that are worn away -  I

decided to venture; at the top

I walked down a cobblestone

street . . .


I came up to an old wooden door

That when opened turned into a

daguerreotype stained in black

and gray – silhouettes of all my

loved ones from the  past were

inside . . .


Hundreds of years of dust tried

To cover all memories – the walls

echoed their voices that were once

heard; mirrors still reflected the light

from smiling faces; I began to feel their

presence . . .


Then aging voices whispered to me

The way things use to be – they were

no longer strangers; took me back to a

special time, it was now in my heart; and

if I ever lost my way, just close my eyes and

dream . . .


Their footsteps were no longer heard

But were now frozen in time – as I got

ready to leave, a feeling of solace took

me back one last time to a place that

seemed so familiar; a part of them was with

me . . .

Hello Lance,

Beautiful with a tinge of sadness. "There are places I'll remember all my life though some have changed, some forever not for better, some have gone and some remain...all these places had their moments, with people and things that went before...but of all these friends and my life I loved you more."

Beatles, definitely-

I went back not long ago to one of the houses I lived in as a child. Oh , how different it all was...but I could still hear the long ago footsteps of my siblings running thru the halls, the echos of our laughter as we played, The halls were silent, no one lived there anymore, hadn't for years. Thanks for taking me back in time to a better day when things were simplier and life was easier.

Love an huggss,

As visual and emotonally moving as a powerful short film. The reader can journey with the narrator through the enigmatic physical environment as well as through the interiors of his spiritual reflections.

A marvelous poem, and I often travel down that very same road. May they always remain in our hearts.
