A note from the past

As I was going through old journals these past few days, I came across this poem, written in May 1988:

For the person in my future
I hope you’re doing well
I hope what I have done
Will help your dreams become fulfilled

To the person I become
I hope you’ll remember me fondly
Remember you were once me
And I felt just as strongly

I hope that my mistakes
Have been of help, my friend
I’m wishing you my luck
To be with you till the end.

————-

It’s strange to think how much has changed since then – not only in my own life but in the world. As I wrote this in a red college-ruled Mead notebook, what would I have thought if somebody would have told me, “‘Twenty-six years from now, this will be on a blog devoted to Rick Springfield and anyone in the world who has access to the Internet will be able to read it.”

I would have had no idea what that meant.
