Nostalgia

Nostalgia









As the band around continues to swell,
With companions varied, and of diverse spell,
On every such day vital by itself or made by task,
Forlorn I feel in the horde jovial but under mask,
And I flip the pages of my yesteryear,
To find you more dear and further near.

The formal intro making way to comfortable chat,
The constant wait turning to compassionate spat,
Reminds only to endorse loud and make it flat,
You are unparalleled, my friend,
Forever in heart, alive and intact.

The truth at heart with trust within untold,
The concern though enormous with affection unfold,
Cajoles only to pledge further firm and fast,
You are unparalleled, my friend,
Forever in heart, alive and intact.

The beaming eyes to turning dry and hollow,
The copious dreams, fading unto longing with sorrow,
Coerces only to apologize tirelessly but true and chaste,
And you are unparalleled, my friend,
Forever in heart, alive and intact.

The calm on face with turbulence within,
The eternal yearn yet composure firm with grin.
Fortifies only to confess ceaselessly and accept for once,
That you are unparalleled, my friend,
Forever in heart, alive and intact.

As the hair turns thin and gray,
And mirror summons me for mental fray,
As the memories asks for substitute hay,
And band around swells as uncontrolled flay,
I feel lost amidst the swarm jolly and well, as prey,
Alone and lonesome, I turn the pages of my yesteryear,
To find you more dear and further near,
As you are unparalleled, my friend,
Forever in heart, alive and intact.
