At the beginning of a new day
as darkness slowly turns to light.
The mind wonders to days gone by
when life was so much simpler.
Childhood memories come and go
in the netherworld preceding dawn.
Memories so vivid and vibrant
but somehow so distant and remote.
Memories of days and years gone bye
that can never be reclaimed.
Remembered and regained for a while
only to be lost again upon waking.
