AGED MEMORIES – REPRISE

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

Aged memories
weathered and worn
through the years
from continual
remembering 

ragged around the edges
crumpled and creased
from
reliving the tender moments
captured in time
from so long ago 

still vivid
and alive in my heart
and in my soul
after all these years 

aged memories
treasured reminders
of you
of us
that I still savor
over and over
again
in my days
in my dreams
or in the silent
darkness of the night
just before the dawn 

I keep aged memories
that are crumpled and creased
with ragged edges
that have frayed some
through the years
but have never faded 

I hide them
deep in my heart
