To Re-live a Memory


We cannot go back and do it again
It just wouldn’t be the same
For we cannot re-live a memory
Though many have tried in vain
The first time is what made it special
Now no imitation will do
For no one can re-live a memory
And still have it feel brand new
We cannot re-write the chapter
And live like it’s never been done
We would simply be foolish actors
Recreating a moment that’s gone
