|Frailties Of Memory Do Occur With The Growing Age…..
Frailties of memory do occur with the growing age,
But there are some enriching past moments etched in the frame of mind,
That which the subtle time cannot cease,
That which render faculty to our yore recapitulation being unconfined.
Life is a menagerie of passionate dreams,
And its every stage a passing moment,
Above all is the childhood phase with blossoming times and mellowing days,
It is such a cherishing stage where innocent thoughts sway and little things seem life’s sublime amusement.
When I pass by that old lane,
There is that nostalgia that buffets my soul,
There is where my mind throws a cornucopia of emotions and stirs me insane,
There is where the episodes of my pleasing childhood ineffably unroll.
Those little delightful plays and myraid enchantments of my early days..
That did make me run before a dainty butterfly with no significant purpose.
Innocence was palpable with no profound contemplation for wealth or fame.
I thought that all these life’s tranquilities would last forever but alas!
As the luminous aurora gradually abates,
and the twilight gently cloaks the day,
So do my chapters of beguiling pastures
now waft away.
And let me rest with my aging ballads and sighs.
Certainly, my friend let us now retire in the murk of night,
And slumber deep with our echoing memories,
For memories my friend shall transcend beyond our life’s fading light,
And shall remain like the embers through the volumes of changing times.
