Sea of memories conjures up my mind
a little stimulus creates a ripple
And a wave of emotions drench my soul
While I sit here rocking my chair and rewind the life’s stroll
How vibrant were my salad days
What a sunshine smile my face wore
To live in cloud cuckoo land was just so fun
How one by one things fades in the long run
Springtime of life with little flowers in my garden
How beautifully they turned into big trees
Where to look for umbrage I wonder
The sun shines brighter each day and I find the shade just always yonder
Loneliness is always so unforeknown
My garden awaits those tiny parakeets
Oh how they fluttered around all over
Oh how I kept them safe and maneuver
They laugh and become angry at me like I used to, at them
Oh how well have I trained them to train me now
My skin is haggard, teeth gone and bones tremble
But still, why I want to be them even my heart stumbles
Buy just a little while my parakeets
And fly time and again to sing a lullaby
For in there lies my happiness and peace
You never know when will the time cease.
Allow me to seize these times as well
And etch them to my core forever
As I just sit here alone rocking my chair
Swallowing the lemonade of yester years.
