       Ive worked on this poem, but it's missing something. I can't really put my finger on what.

    dotsMemories after Midnightdots

    Itís late, yet Iím still awake
    Pondering things of little consequence.
    My mind wanders, wonders, and meanders
    down a convoluted, nostalgic path.
    I taste my memories
    So sweet and melancholy,
    Just soft enough to sink your teeth into.
    The taste brings a smile to lips and I carry on

    A flash of violet catches my eye
    A spiral of satin ribbon
    Itís all thatís left of what made me a little girl,
    I lend down and pick it up
    Idly twirl it around my finger
    The sight of it brings a smile to my lips and I carry on

    A familiar scent stops me in my tracks,
    I look for the source
    An ever-blooming bouquet
    Roses with soft peach petals
    Their longevity is a pleasant surprise,
    Since the love represented fizzled out long ago
    The scent of them brings a smile to my lips and I carry on

    I had only taken a step,
    When I felt a gentle caress fondle each auburn tress
    And brush away a single tear.
    I could never forget that loving warm hand
    Itís gentleness only surpassed by its strength
    When the fingers curl into a fist, prepared to fight
    The feel of my motherís touch brings a smile to my lips and I carry on

    A familiar melody fills my thoughts,
    Raising the hair on the back of my neck---
    In a good way.
    I cannot help but sing along,
    My voice resonating in my skull
    The sound brings a smile to my lips and I carry on

    Itís late, and Iím still awake
    Pondering things of little consequence
    My mind wandered, wondered and meandered
    Down a convoluted, nostalgic path
    Before settled down
    And went to sleep.

      Hmm something wrong with the piece other than omitting the "to" at the end of the first stanza and saying "lend" instead of "bend" I saw nothing wrong. This is really wonderful. I love how you ended the last stanzas up until the final stanza when you found peace at last. A really nice, I must commend you.
