Abandoned House

With imagination soaring high
haunting and happy wild memories
remembering the good times, when
laughter and love filled the air

a home once full of health and joy
when it stood in all its splendor
mind hearing voices echoing upstairs
many now not living on this earth

so many secrets living within its walls
now groaning floorboards, broken glass
rotting stairs falling apart from age
now memories are all there is left

rubbish scattered everywhere
over-grown ivy-clad moss walls
a smell of bats, rats scarring away
spider-webs clinging everywhere

an uninhabited building, house no joy
only a shadow left in the cold mist
ruins of time, a home once lived in
no longer, home of laughter and joy.
