Those Days

20181116_190221

you strum the guitar softly
and wrote songs with a great melody
the crowd was cheering joyfully
your band playing rock n roll gently

those days, oh those thrilling days

we exchanged the sweetest hellos
and the saddest goodbyes
the passionate and endearing kiss
lingering gaze, I remember always

those days, oh those enchanting days

your melody was my second heartbeat
and your smile was romantic,
promising and charming

those days where the sweetest of you

  4. Such a lovely piece! I like how it could be about a lost love or when the narrator and her significant other first met.

    I love the unexpectedness of the word “gently” in this line: “your band playing rock n roll gently” It’s an excellent word choice.

      1. I remember jumping on buses to travel to places that I can’t imagine going to today…to wander beloved beaches, soak up the energy of grittier parts of the city or jump on a train heading up country to attend a wedding on the fly!

    Love lost? Love imagined (a fan’s fantasy)? Regrets or daydreams? So many options. I suppose that is the earmark of good poetry – allows interpretation based on the filtered vision of your own experiences….
