Nostalgia is the future; the past without the pain,

Wistfulness the dream I dreamt when longing kept me sane,

Longing is the dream I have to be nostalgia free,

But slipping into future thoughts it never lets me be.


Nostalgia is seductive, the temptress and the sprite,

A shadow that won’t let me go, I carry it as blight.

Nostalgia is a lesson but a lesson I’ll not learn,

For none but I will ever know the past for which I yearn.


Nostalgia is the sentiment that’s knocking at my door,

For time will tell - I know so well that it will leave me poor.

Nostalgia is tomorrow, the past I can’t un-write,

Melancholy my lullaby, the ever bitter bite.


Nostalgia is the cross I bear, the price of growing old,

Reminisce and wistfulness are sentiments of gold,

Appreciate the moment, hold it to your breast,

When days will slip away from you -

Yearning is your guest.

Nostalgia is not what it used to be.
