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
