Memories of a lifetime

A thousand words said,
And a thousand unsaid
A million thoughts go unread
Only a few memories stay embed

The sands of time that never cease to trickle
Layering up a mind ever so fickle
Standing out moments priced well beyond a nickle
Reminiscences that tend to render the heart a tickle

A memory that speaks a thousand words
Yet some pass by absolutely unheard
And there are some that are meant to be stirred
Try as you can, they are not meant to be reword.

Good one maga :) Some lines took me reading twice to understand. Liked these lines "A million thoughts go unread
Only a few memories stay embed".

Just as I was engrossed in the scientist-mode writing on the information processing theory and working memory, i read this!
Your poem "stirred" my days as a English lit. major- my arts&humanities side.
It reads nicely, Karthik...
