If You’re Goin’ My Way…

I remember the leaves of spring
Each vibrant
Fresh
Alive and lush
Overrun with promise
Sprouting to blot out the bareness of winter
Precious
Soft
Beautiful

I remember the skips and jumps
Exuberant
Vital
Full of spunk and vigor
The promise of a coming day could wait for the thrill of the now
Warm breezes, swirling bodies and minds
Curious
Adventurous
Galant

I remember the songs. The songs.
Heartbreaking and heartwarming
New and important
Futures passed and presents gilded
Nothing would end for the world was right and true
Ambition
Time
Conqueror

I remember the colors of the living
Each shade
Hues
Palates spotted with challenges
Promises made and broken
Draining in intensities and darknesses
Responsible
Dedicated
Stalwart

I remember the lives of yesteryear
Each so dear
Critical
Tapestries of legacy
Overrun by melancholy
Bare trees adorned in stark grays, ice, snow
Truth
Realization
Inevitability

I have a dream
A dream to last a million years
A heart to beat to its own music
A passion to believe
A sadness to coincide with the waxings and wanings of life
A broken soul to mend throughout time itself
A tear for love which should have been
But not for this life
Not for me
Yet I do have a dream
I carry it with me and refuse to keep it hid

If you’re goin’ my way…
