Life’s Echoes


Thoughts on Living

Life’s Echoes

While some would say, it’s dementia,

the old-timer’s mind, isn’t quite so sound.

They’re living here in the present,

but, to the past their thoughts be bound.

Where each and every small detail,

in their memory, can be found.

But to them, it’s just life’s echoes,

that are coming back around.
