An old memory

I was viewing my photo album,

Just remembering my old ones.

I wish they could have stayed longer,

To have more conversations,

To have met more people,

And seen more skies,

Below which I swooned.

I was thinking of the old days,

When I began to wonder,

If only I had read more books,

And whistle more tunes to myself,

I’d have been not a vagabond at heart today.

Perhaps it was only for the good.

I’d like to thank Scott Rainer for having written a large part of this poem, and inspiring me to write the rest. he is an amazing writer of great talent.

    Seems sheer and honest. The rest is a bit too additional. But those lines are exquisite.

    1. Many of these lines were added by Scott Rainer. Though I was the one who got the idea, he wrote most of it other than the first two lines. Though he was happy to let me have it entirely to myself.
      Thank you so much for reading and commenting!
