`DAYS OF YOUTH PAST`



Torn between nostalgia
and getting older
Its been 40 years since graduating
Gone are the years of my youth

Mixed with pleasure and pain
Today I am reminded
That the gathering of those friends
Brings me such mixed emotions

Wanting to leave days past
Yet, there is a quiet curiousity
Of how it would feel to reunite 
If only for a brief period of time

So many feelings
Rising up from my Soul
I let go of all expectations
As I move with the flow

People change
And our paths take different turns
What once was
May never be again

I am forced to look back
With fondness in my heart
For those experiences
Shaped the woman I am today
