Thoughts during a car journey

Memory light

Joys unconfined

Treasures of mind

Blessings untold

Special as gold

Glistening bright


Memory dark

Relationships broken

Words harshly spoken

Failure and pain

Heartache’s refrain

Dreadfully stark


Memory grey

Muddy, unclear

Facts disappear

Silenced by years

Cried out in tears

Drifted away


Memory mix

All so confused

Leaves one bemused

Blurs into one

life that is gone

No amnesia fix
