Of Memories



Tomorrow, today will be a memory. Let's make it a good one!

We cherish our own, each precious and dear
Be they ever so humble how we hold them near
Echoes of living where only thought sees
This is the treasure of memories

Pictures of spring where carefree children dance
Pictures of summer, roses and romance
Pictures of autumn; stunning middle-age
Before winter’s silver-swift turning of page

Softly the sifting of sands coalesce
Brimming with love’s bittersweet tenderness
Oh, how the moment at hand quickly flees
Joining our collage of memories

Nothing on earth can their measure replace
These are love’s offerings of trial and grace
Picture by picture fills thought’s galleries
Time-tempered walk-way of life-memories
