Memories

Together we sang our songs, together we wrote our stories, but today it’s merely stashed away under the label- “Memories.”
So now, I simply flip through those pages, tenderly thinking of the past, remembering who we used to be sitting in the class.

Long conversations and just laughing ’til we couldn’t breathe, it grips me taking the hold of my entire being, as my heart starts to seethe.
Cause it’s like a reminder of the happiness I once owned, and of the love that’ll always remain, of the people I no longer have and will never come across again.

“Random Memories”-a reminiscent word said here, a familiar melody heard there But burst of them giggles and laughter catch me off-guard tighter.
So I learnt to settle for passing through such moments, by walking through the doors, only allowing my heart to flicker and flutter, a little and some more.

A strange feeling fills my chest whenever I visit this place, cause I miss
not only the people I love, but also the person I was at that time and space.
And since it will never be the same, so I cling to the memory, to the people I’ll always frame, afraid to let it fade, to let it become a ghost, as everything I ever valued became everything I lost.

  1. Very beautiful, the best things that ever happen to a person are people they love, places they visit and memories they made throughout the journey, this post is a perfect potray of that. ❤️

  2. Yes, I, too, like to visit the land of memories. But, when you wrote, “I miss
    not only the people I love, but also the person I was at that time and space,”
    I was reminded that time stops for no one and we are always in a state of flux.
    I appreciate who I was – the simple, uncomplicated, playful me, but I also embrace
    who I have become – and I never want to diminish the new me by wishing what was.
    I hope you embrace the new you, too! ❤

  3. I am sure all relate to what you have shared …… its beautiful. I am blessed to be still in touch with my chaddi buddies 🙂 and I cannot explain how joyful it is. The entire childhood and adolescence comes back when I speak to them or meet them. We have all evolved and are still evolving as a person but there is something that connects us still ……………

  4. Awesome 🤩 we all cherish good memories and bad memories keep us asking why?
    On the whole I love the child, the young woman that I used to be but I am also very happy and blessed to be the new me, an aging woman with many accomplishments.
    I wish the same for you. Embrace the new you and enjoy what you’re today and slowly letting go of the past.
    The present is a gift 💝 of God.
