An old poem of mine

The Mystery of Music

It’s odd how a long forgotten melody
can jog the dormant memory
and make the heart ache for times past.

If scent is the strongest sense tied to memory,
then sound is the second
and music in particular –
plunging the mind into a state of
wistful reminiscence
realizing that today has become yesterday
And yes, today, will become
another yesterday.


  1. Nothing brings nostalgia like music. I think it even surpasses scent. Nice one.

  2. Thanks Myne. Yeah, there's just something about some songs that just take me back....... :) Or :( sometimes.
