Let’s Make a Memory

With each new day that passes

Let’s make a memory

Let’s make the good times last

And chase away the gloom

Let’s make a memory

With each new season

To remember the good

And forget the bad

Each season brings with it

Its own special beauty

That steals our hearts away

Let’s make a memory

Every day that we live

Treasure the moments

That we share

The smiles and the happiness

And be there for each other

When the tears fall

Let’s make a memory

Every day of our lives

Then we can look back

At all that we’ve done

Remember the times that we have shared

The love and the laughter

The days that so swiftly

Run by like startled deer

Let’s make a memory

Every time we kiss

Take my hand and walk down

Memory lane with me

Spend some quiet moments

Taking a look at pictures

Of friends and loved ones

Remembering the smiles

That we left behind

Each and every day that passes

Let’s find some good in it

So when the day has ended

We can make another memory

Yes. We must remember. I have boxes of photographs that I have yet to put in albums. Your poem encourages me to resume such an important project. Also love Roy Orbison and the song you chose by him worked beautifully. Voted Up!

i know this may sound a tad redundant, but - i love your life-lessons AND their delivery! You are so wise, Rasma, to appreciate what you have - while you have it! And to urge others to do the same..

I try to every day! Some days are easier than others, of course..

It's the effort that matters..

Sharing and caring, my friend
