Archives of Youth

Innocence of long ago
Of memories sublime
Veiled by aging shadow
Dust gathered through time

 

Youthful light has faded
Makes it difficult to see
Existence becomes jaded
Happiness, hard to believe

 

Lost within the archives
Is a memory, a treasure
Holding power to revive
A life, devoid of pleasure

 

The crusade to recover
Is a necessary quest
Internally rediscover
Reclaim forgotten zest

 

Introspectively awaken
The museum of memory
Exhibitions that enlighten
A nostalgic treasury

 

Regression holds the answer
Remembering how to play
Innocence an anchor
If dust is blown away

 

To find that moment of relief
Deeply delving to the past
Recovering the lost belief
That happiness can last
