Echoes of the Distant Past
Sounds of distant years
form vibrations in my ears.
They bring echoes from life behind
and impress memories in my mind.
Hearts tingle in succession
and flood my body with emotion
at the presence of an event or friend
real or imagined again and again.
The Spirit wails and wails
in search of twice-told tales
filling empty spaces with similarity
of a past life seen with clarity.
Will my life in the course of time
repeat itself like poetry in rhyme?
Or find a new path to take
that NO ONE, but I, can imitate!
