All the memories in my mind


The moments of happiness, smiling and laughter


Merely fragments of my past


The sounds and emotions still feel so real


The friendships so familiar


But non-existant


Here I sit, in my old age


Pondering about the life of my former self


Silently I wait for Death’s arrival


For I live in the past, where friends live and love


But now they have passed, and I am alone


Spare for the memories of them


Here I sit alone, waiting to be reunited
