Somewhere out in cyberspace
on some obscure web page
lies the eternal fountain of youth,
just waiting – always waiting –
to be discovered.
Waiting for the right URL to be entered
to relive dreams saved
from our forgotten past –
to explore all the todays
that might have been –
and reveal the promises we prayed
awaited us in all of our tomorrows.
I want to find my past,
rediscover my life,
edit all that might appear on my screen,
remove the wrinkles from my flesh,
delete my illness and my pain,
restore the zest and vigor
of my passion
and DOWNLOAD the knowledge and wisdom
I have gathered though the years
to give to my youth who had need of it.
But I cannot find the proper address.
Each time I hit ENTER, an error
upon my screen.
and states FILE (of your life)
and cannot be accessed by my server.
I must not have read the small print. The $19.95
unlimited access fee does not cover
access to the web page of my life, nor will I
always be around to pay my monthly bill.
