Glad I Came This Way Again
Author: Ben Laney


I'm looking
At familiar faces
And eyes
That shine with smiles
Walking through
The same old places
That I left for a while
Now I'm touching
Your warm hand once more
It's like yesterday again
Oh, I recall
All the days before
Do you still
Think about them?

I see you've
Been through some changes
The time shows
Around your eyes
It's the same
With me and the seasons
As I roll
And turn through life
But I'm standing
In front of you now
And it does
My heart some good
I knew this
Would happen somehow
Like I hoped
And dreamed it would

And I'm glad I came
This way again
I really can't remember
Can you tell me,
How long has it been?
And I'm so happy to find
That you are still a friend
And I'm glad I came
This way again

I like this one alot. Alot of your poems relate to me, Ben, which is why I like them so much. Apparently, you do something, I can't. Write my feelings down for me. So, in a way, I should thank you. Keep on writing, and good job!

WOW! Ben, isn't it remarkable how one being can relate to so many others on where they have once been this poem put me at a place i once visited and actually brought back fond memories i guess in this life were all entwined with one another on what we have gone thru or about to face. kind of like an inner window to our past and future... you got me tuned to this sight it is like a rush, i like my site when i want to be alone...but...i like this site, because i can comment on how a poem had me reminiscing all good feelings ....excellent poem...

Author's Comment..It is good to go see.....

To go see old friends is a good thing. More than the familiar places, it's looking into their faces. Your comments are most welcome. I read them and relish them. Thank you!!
