Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge – Memory

A swiftly failing memory
No prose and no poems
When world is tender be
When life’s full of roses
Then the wind change and it’s all gone
All alone like a black swan
Then the wind change
Then the wind change
Got to be tough sine qua non

A swiftly failing memory
With all the promises
In each other’s eyes lovingly
Thought it was so joyous
With you and me against the world
With no secrets that flap unfurled
With you and me
With you and me
Then it wasn’t the real world

A swiftly failing memory
Sunrise and moonlight
Like jewels in the treasury
I thought you were my knight
Not meant to be, that we know now
Lesson learned and move on somewhow
Not meant to be
Not meant to be
But with no regrets anyhow*

* Trijan Refrain

‘Twas a bittersweet memory
And with paper airplane
No disdain and so tender be
Hug and eat in the rain
With old bikes you leading the way
Could be freezing until we’re grey
With old bikes
With old bikes
Fighting with cushion no foul play

‘Twas a bittersweet memory
And with my dear sister
Three of us full of energy
Trend ends up with blister
Childhood memory in our hearts
When we’re tired we eat apple tarts
Childhood memory
Childhood memory
Defense ready in our ramparts

‘Twas a bittersweet memory
Molding us who we are
Julia, Annie and Emery
Always trouble by far
We’d always be friends come what may
Even when our hair turn all grey
We’d always be friends
We’d always be friends
With our old bikes down the alley**

** Trijan Refrain
