Listening to music from my past
Parts of every song there you are
Clouding every thought brought forward
Oldies from years together still scar
I’m punished believing in magic
Nostalgia overcomes us all
So I’m bent down in reverie’s revenge
Overcome now, fighting to stand tall
If only we could celebrate again
Returning for us would help love rekindle
Tapping toes to the beat of used to be
Looking up at our mountain of life dwindled
Now listening to new memories
New loves have broken through once more
Because being gone as long as you were
Old songs shared are again slamming doors

Great poem, Michael! Reminds me of Engelbert Humperdinck’s “Release Me”.
I immediately youtubed it and it brought some fun memories to the surface. we did just that and formed a wonderful friendship.
Mr. Humperdinck’s musical interpretations really do take you back. Great to hear.
Ohhhh … those memories attached to ,em>”our oldies” Thanks for sharing! 😀
Of all the triggers, music is the strongest for me.
