Just once in a while
It's good to recall,
to revisit the past,
to promenade down memory lane
Not for nought but
Just to wonder
Just to ponder
Even though there can't be comprehension or clarification
On how things went asunder
How all went awry
And life took a wrong turn
Plans dissipated like an apparition right in front of your eyes
Dreams scattered like a profusion of puzzle pieces
Just when you presumed the
Picture was coming together.

Just once in a while
It's perfectly acceptable
To wander and wonder
To travel to the realm of dreams
And ponder
What might have been
What could have been
What almost had been
Not for nought
But to feel that magic
One more time
To see those smiles
One more time
To hear the laughter
One more time
To resurrect those emotions
One more time

Only once in a while
I say!
