SEARCHLIGHTS, by                
First Line: When I come back
Last Line: And the path of faint perfume.
Subject(s): Homecoming; Memory

When I come back,
All my memories are reborn.
Along familiar streets they form,
As faces, places, come in view --
Searchlights, piercing through
To mad days that live again --
Glad days and
Sad days too.

A voice, a tune,
A faint perfume
Echo down a length of years,
Awake emotions undefined
Groping in a mist of tears,
Searching for the hidden key
To unlock the mystery
Of the voice, the mocking tune,
And the path of faint perfume.
