Memories have been following me all around today
Speaking to my mind and making room to stay
I want to move them out but they simply will not go
So I will have to adjust as they plan their evening show.
They are speaking to me of things hurtful to my mind
I am trying to get away but they have me in a bind
Sometimes they overpower this poor heart of mine
Memories are like weeds and hold tighter than a vine.
Perhaps a gentle image before my weary eyes
Will turn my focus away from their taunting cries
So I gaze intently on the lake so peaceful and still
Not trying to form any words just quieting my will.
Soon I hear the sound of the waters gentle flow
And peace becomes part of me letting my spirit go
I simply sit in silence and let the waters heal
All that the memories brought me; all I that i had to feel.
