Poem – Take It To The Limit

Listening to music

with my wife and son

Nostalgia

Rushes over me

in a musical wave

I almost can’t take the flow

the speed

as it rushes

washing me down

I’m caught in the undertow

I give in

I let it take me

I float

I drift

On a sea of Time

Thinking back

Memories

cruising days

What happened?

Where’s that magic track?

The one that will take us back

When music was –

friends

buds

and

suds

Records

Tapes

CD’s

my youth

rushed by so fast

I hope my son

will have memories

like mine

Oh Nostalgia

I love you so

Yes,

Take it to the limit one more time

Now it’s your turn.  Flood my comment section below with bands or songs that take you back.  Give me a reason why if you want.  You don’t have to though.  Sometimes the artist or song alone will tell the tale.

  1. Pink Floyd- anything by them– memories of just hanging out with my husband– many many moons ago.

    Bon Jovi, Beastie Boys– drinkin’and partying in college– really an 80’s hair band will do
    I guess I am totally aging myself here! haa .

    1. Trust me – I know about the aging thing. I was watching the New Years celebration this year and I knew only a couple of songs they showcased. I guess it does just pass on by.
