Memories



you pass on memories
in shining paper boats
blue ripples all the way
look, how they float

I hold on to memories
that swim by my shore
like mirage in deserts
some dreams are no more

we sit on failing prayers
and wishes we hoped were true
the sweeping breeze hums our song
weathered by time, and yet so new
