Tale of the lost tune

Just happened to listen to "Oh what a night" after a long time and suddenly flooded with memories of when the song played one evening. Magical!


At one time, the music was just exciting
the lyrics held no real meaning
It was just the music that we happened to
dance that one particular evening

But then the years just rolled by
and lay buried that soulful tune
under many layers of memories
until one day they were exhumed

Then oddly the music struck a chord
and the words took on a shape
the past swiftly came alive
and into them we could escape


It is indeed quite strange
how situations could elicit
many strong emotions at times
such a comfort to the decrepit

The End
