Silver Memories

wisp

 

The cup’s empty
It was once a symbol of triumph
But now it’s an empty chalice
It once shone with pride
Fit to grace the finest Palace
But now, battered and tarnished
Taking up a space
A reminder of another man
A man full of passion and grace
A victim of passing time
The oldest and greatest sinner
Crumbling heroes
Once I felt a winner
The cup was never full
It was always just a token
A sign of times gone by
And memories re-awoken
The cup’s empty
But it never used to be
It used to mean something
And it always will to me
