See Things For What They Can Be

I Remember When

Copyright 2011
There was a time
In time’s past
Wishes were made
Dreams were dreamed

Young mind daydreaming
Dreams of what could be
Dreams of his future
Young visions seen

He is ambitious
Eager to start
Ready for anything
Wanting it all

Yet, know it all
Wondering if the world
Is ready for him

That’s what some say
Is how he answers…

Things have happened
Over the years
The journey has been
Turbulent, to say the least

I still see that young man
With all of his visions
Dreams of dreams
Still swimming in head

I still see his vigor
His want for it all
Now?, you say, Now?
Better now than never

That young man still lives
Though his body is weathered
The young man still lives
Because I remember when

This is my entry for Poetry Potluck 
where the theme is:
Photographs, Memories and Nostalgia…
