Reminiscent of Love



Reminisce about the good times,

Blocking out the bad,

Keep hold of all the slow rhymes,

Going crazy, just too sad,


Concentrating on the work life,

Just to drown the pain to numb,

Now you’re someone else’s wife,

Heart still beating like a drum,


Still, I’ve moved on quite contently,

Writing songs for someone new,

Suppress the feelings honestly,

All my words, they flow for you,


Must take stock, live in the present,

With a brief nod to the past,

For my World now so damn pleasant,

But the memories still last.
