... Of Surviving the Wilderness
Yesterday reality was pushed away
Memories floated like clouds above
Reliving the good times in my life
For it was you I was thinking of
Today I watched in great expectation
Everyone walking through the door
They were but shadows from the past
For it was you, I was searching for
Filtered music of a voice remembered
Glimpses of familiarity in the night
No words can express the warmth I felt
When you finally came into sight
As we enjoyed our kindred thoughts
The hours melted uncaringly away
We had to say goodbye far too soon
There was far too much left to say
I made a wish we might meet again
But if wishes don’t come true
I will always have the memories
Of the special times I had with you
Tomorrow I will begin a new day
Warm thoughts will guide me as I do
Living the dreams you helped inspire
For tomorrow, I will think of you
If you have ever gone to a high school reunion you were probably like most of us.
Even though our bodies and experiences had changed, our mind thought we were teenagers again - filled with doubts, anxieties and remembrances of another lifetime.
Did they live up to our expectations? Or, more importantly to us, did we live up to theirs?
Did you see your first real love? Was the attraction still there?
One weekend - a thousand questions - do you remember?
Its almost 20 years since our 20 year reunion and I still remember - maybe not so much most of the girls I dated, but the one I wished I had had the courage to ask out so many years ago.
