My Memories Keep You Alive - A Poem


My Memories Keep You Alive

My memories keep you alive

Easing all of my pain inside

But I cannot try anymore

Life is becoming such a chore.

We were little girls one point in time

Innocent committing no crime.

But you never really had a chance

At life, at romance.

God took you a way at the age of ten

I remember, I was only seven.

I cried my eyes out but made a promise I would try

A promise I can't keep because suddenly things grow awry.

Pain seems to be all I know,

Hurt, anger, full of sorrow.

Stress weighing me down

Life is suddenly a ghost town.

No colors so bright, no laughter, no joy,

No more playing with little toys.

I am an adult now, you see

And it seems I am becoming less free.

My memories keep you alive

But even those are taking a dive

Into the darkened shadows

That are constantly surrounding my soul.

Please forgive me if I no longer try

There are too many rules to abide by.

I have to do this, I have to do that.

I have to be this way and not be that.

It's all getting to rough, to hard to handle

Life is growing into one great scandle.

I know somewhere you can hear me

At least to some degree.

Don't give up on me, I may fall from time to time

But upon writing these words I do believe I will try.

At least for you my dear friend,

Who never had a chance, never again.

My memories keep you alive.

Beautiful poem.

It's a delicate balance, keeping memories alive without becoming lost in the past.

If we remember the good times, both can move forward into new experiences, but the pain and the hurt, binds us to a moment in time.

If only, we could look back and smile every time about the gift that was, that is, still living on within.

I know, easier said than done.

Voting up.

Crecent, your talent lies in poetry. I'm not saying an easy thing. Poets are treated like dishwashers, or the homeless, but, sweet girl, this is the real stuff. I am so proud of you. You may hate me in days to come, but for now, remember when I tell you, you have a gift that only the godhead can give. I will hold you all I can, and such sweet hopes for your future emanate from me. Always, no matter what, stay true to your voice. It is unique.Happy New Year Sweetie! Love yaz, lily
