Someday a Memory
By: Eve Estelle

From behind my pane of crystal glass,
I look out upon these familiar grounds;
Common homes in your standard suburb,
But home to me and those baying hounds -
Now by heart I know these sights, these sounds.

I watch the ghosts of days gone by,
And shiver with future's touch;
The stores I'd frequent, the brick and asphalt I'd walk,
Those I met, the cordial souls with whom I'd talk -
Someday they'll all be past.
The world knows that nothing lasts;
Changes come and changes go,
But still the memories remain;
They're here to stay,
While the rest - it goes away.

Someday this will all just be..
..A sad, but sweet, memory.

Author's note: This feels very unfinished to me, but I'm having a difficult time thinking of what else to change to improve it. If you have any suggestions, do let me know - I'd be grateful! :)


  1. It does finish a little unfinished, but I like it a lot. Maybe add more memories to it? I'm not sure. I really like it though. I think about this sometimes. That one day what I'm doing now will only be a memory in later years, and I'll look back on it the way I do to current memories.

    1. I was thinking maybe I could add an extra memory or two.. Hm. I guess I'll see what comes to mind after a little while and some distance from it!

      Yes, exactly. It's amazing how everything flies by like that. Things seem like they'll last forever, but then they're gone all too soon.

      Thanks so much, Ashley! :) Glad you liked it! And thanks for the suggestion. I'll definitely be looking into it.

  2. I really feel you! Especially with the pressure of being a blogger.

    1. Blogging definitely puts on the pressure at times! Especially when it comes to getting posts out regularly.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I think it's beautiful. ;) Amazing job, Eve!

  4. It doesn't really matter that it's kind of unfinished because this poem is still amazing :) Keep it up Eve! :D
