call to mind, friend

there you are
old friend

where have you been
old friend

have you come back
to discuss our lusts
or old loves

to romanticize failures
be at peace
with lost endeavours

i recount them daily
living vicariously
through past memories

growing older
never wiser in ways

have you achieved
what has eluded you

the years
have been tough
aggravatingly so

you and i
we are not the same
as we once were

maybe in appearance

but our hearts
our minds
with defeat

have we conquered our past
are we ready to accept
our blessings, now

or do we look back
wasting more years
wondering, what if?

may our hearts correct
what our minds lead astray
