Are Memories Real?


Is it possible that memories get better with time
Could they be become more enhanced in our mind
Images of what was or even what might have been
Does life turn a smile or a desire from real to blind.

Each day we have memories come back to relive
Whether fleeting or we close our eyes to dream
Some special moments replay over and over again
So vivid we can reach out and touch, it would seem.

Did the connection really happen or was it a trick
Could it be we alone remember feelings we replay
At times memories we hold so dear inside and smile
Made no impression on anyone else, who can say.

Maybe it is this life of electronics and daily stress
Maybe growing older or finding a new path to walk
Maybe we do find truth to the saying ‘It is what it is’
Life keeps on changing like the hands on the clock.

    Ah, real or not, memories are dreams that were, or may be. It’s nice to believe in them.
