If you listen carefully, your memories can be heard,

Words and phrases spoken or listened too are recorded.

Thoughts in your head feel at times louder, just an echo,

Sounds and scenes from a lifetime played over, can you hear.?

Noises from children playing back when just a child, just a child,

Friends from long ago just an echo in time, listen, they can be heard.

In the span of a lifetime like the wind moving by, created in an instance,

An echo in time we will be, just an echo in time for you and me.

Keith Garrett

  1. Sometimes, I look at a scene in the present, knowing that maybe twenty years from now, I will look at this very scene with a strong longing to relive this moment… Thanks for sharing this amazing poem 💛⭐
