South Park & Lakewood Terrace

5/5/98


The empty forest,
The unoccupied tables.
Not a roaring fire in sight!
For me the voices echo eternally,
down the forgotten trails.

To the many faces I've came across,
all the conversations, hopes, and dreams.
Sharing them together.
watching the countless sun rises, and sunsets.

Taking all the good with the bad.
Season after season.
Lost souls united, speaking as one mind.
But as the time passed,
another link of the chain was seemingly broken.

The trails intertwine, they connect.
So, shall the lost souls.
This park that surrounds the Terrace will remain.

One day!
One night!
One year!

We shall all be one again.
From this forgotten friend
I send a message of gladness, sadness, uncertainty,
but most of all Thanks!

I wrote this about a place that brought me peace& love. A place that healed my heart, and help free my soul. This a place that memory will play, until god rings a bell to come home.

I just wanted to share a little piece of my youth, and to think of old friends. I wanted share this with my new friends, and hope you all have a rewarding day! Thanks you all for stopping by, and do me a favor today! :) SMILE! :)

Peace&Love
Wes

Can you believe it's been ten years? I think of '98 and think well that's not that long ago. A car that age would still be pretty expensive... and then I realize that it's already been ten years. And then of course I veer off on a MPPD ;) and start to think of all the things that have transpired in those ten years. And by now you're aware of how my brain works from that point on. haha

I've smiled several times today already, Wes, most recently when I read your poem.

Hugs, Beth

I guarantee that there is never a day that goes by that I do not smile. It is part of my makeup :o)
