The Music That Makes Memories Worth Remembering

My old cassette player is like a mental photo album of all my childhood memories.

Just listening to a certain song can take you back to a time when nothing seemed to matter.

The sweet transition from Reo Speedwagon to The Counting Crows and everything in-between.

I learned how to fight for my right to party from The Beastie Boys, and learned about the pompatus of love from Steve Miller

I got high with Willie and Dylan, and sang along with "You've Got A friend" when James Taylor may have been my only friend

My cassettes became my companions, accompanying me on random road trips and keeping me sane in insane moments

through breakups and makeups, I am grateful for the time we spent together

but much like life itself, the cassettes became unraveled

my idols became old and grey

some boarded planes to rock n roll heavens far above the clouds

time is a thief that robs everyone of their days

one day you are the rebellious youth, rocking out to The Stooges and Ramones, and the next thing you know, You're rocking in a wooden chair seated in the foyer of an old folks' home

listening to some crooner imitating Sinatra, badly.

Goodbye Past, I'll miss you.
