LOST PLACES

I take a walk sometimes,

On soothing lonely nights,

Talking to the shadows that come alive,

About the adventures we had,

Just, you and I.

I remember,

The playground where our wars were waged,

The basement where our cycles were raced,

The cemetery where our bravery was faked,

The staircase where our promise was made.

I laugh at times,

At our symphony of noise,

At our fights over toys,

At our ingenious pranks,

At our cardboard tanks.

I won’t forget that time,

When we gazed at a dark sky,

When I did not have the strength to try,

When all I wanted was to cry,

When you made me smile.

I cherish,

Those pirates who stole joy in broad daylight,

Those pilots of dreams who took flight,

Those liars with creative minds,

Those explorers with small delightful finds.

I know,

That now we live in a different time,

That now we are responsible for our own crime,

That change has not been kind,

That our connection has declined.

But you know,

On a cold stormy night,

I find warmth in my life,

From the memories we froze that time,

That bring peace to my mind.

Let’s take a walk sometimes,

On soothing lonely nights,

Take the shadows that come alive,

To the lost places we can find,

On adventures where happiness resides,

Just, you and I.
