Life brings tears, smiles and memories. The tears dry, the smiles fade but the memories last forever. Some memories are unforgettable, remaining ever vivid and heart warming!

The Train of Memories, Take Me Back To The Past

There was a time when l saw you in one of my dreams.

You were wearing a black skin jean and a black T-shirt.

You know what? I must say the color black really looks good on you.

In that dream you were the most handsome.

I have never seen you so happy and vibrant as you were in that dream.

I think l'm the luckiest person here on earth because l'm the one you were laughing with in that dream.

The one you were walking with and holding hands with in that dream.

The one you were playful with in that dream.

I was so disappointed when l woke up only to realize it was just a dream.

But l'm glad it was you l was with in that dream.

They say memories is a type of fuel that keeps you going through the journey of life.

Considering how things are now between us, what l can hold on to are the memories we shared together.

It really pains me to think that the one person who used to be so close to me even in my dreams is now behaving like a stranger to me.

No matter how hard l try to divide, multiply, subtract and add, l still can't find the answer to the mathematics of this situation.

How did it turn out this way? is the question that is still boggling my mind because l can't seem to find an answer.

All l can do now is rewind back to the times we used to be happy together.

How unfortunate is that going back to the past is just a wishful thinking.

I thought l had let go of everything we were but the memories are still fresh in the back of my mind.

What do l do?

I miss you a lot but the fact that l can't do anything about it drives me crazy.

If there is one thing that is very clear in my mind is l still like you like before and l can't stop myself from liking you.

I tried it so many times but my heart refused to listen to me.

Whenever l try to convince my heart to let go and start over afresh it just gives me a could shoulder.

Hey! What did you do to my heart? 

Did you cast a spell on it? Now it can't even listen to me anymore.

Take responsibility you clueless jerk!

But if there is one thing even God knows, is that l used to make you happy a lot. 

I am not sure if it's still the same now though l have doubts considering how much you have changed. 

All l can say is that the days l used to be with you were the best. 

I hope you are doing well where ever you are.

Dear train of memories, please take me back to the past.
