Memory Lane

I took a trip through my mind
through its crowded pathways
filled with people
and monuments marking events
taking me through the journey of a lifetime

I was almost run over
overwhelmed by wayward vehicles
carrying people who came and went
as quickly as the clouds overhead
Their faces distant memories
on the roads of life

I often circle back to the same streets
sometimes forgetting my way
around the familiar scenes
the roads capturing the delight of the days
I pause on familiar corners
to take in a breath of remembrance  

The streets are cluttered
patched to create a city collage
familiar buildings and creations
springing up without notice

I always feel my way
through the complexities and uncertainty
through the back alleys and main roads
onto the pleasant scenes found nowhere else
but down memory lane
