“Reminiscent”

That's what I used to do run and catch the ball,
run like the wind, no caution
to the bumps in the road, 
no thoughts of future consequence,


or the concrete beneath my feet.


Broken bones, like broken dreams 
can be mended by time,
what was done years ago is referred to often 
as though it was a preacher's sermon,


ignored every Sunday.


Whether the scent of roses are remembered,
or the fact that you could touch the sky,
I guess it doesn't make any difference,
everything is sweeter when you are young,


and everything sparkles like a diamond.


Sweet memories such as these are kept close
in a treasure chest known as your mind,
never let anyone steal the key,
or you'll be locked out of your past,


can the fall of the future be far behind?
