TIME HELD DEAR

Source

Of all the things I hold so dear,

Memories may be crystal clear.

Happy days coming back to me;

Recall a thought, then I can see.

I see my friends from long ago;

We’d play or laugh, and let it go.

I see my mother baking pies.

Missing her sometimes makes me cry.

I know she’s in a better place,

Peaceful smiles upon her face;

She’s there with dad and loved ones passed;

I miss them all, time goes to fast.

I think about the early days,

Youth has gone but memories stay.

Recalling a memory seems,

Much like having a time machine.

Hi Diana,

This is lovely, I have recently lost a loved one also and memories have become very special to me.

Beautifully said, I have voted this up.

Thank you. It seems the older I get the more forgetful I am. But I never forget my younger years.

Special memories do help with missing our loved ones and missing our youth. I try to make special memories for my children and grandchildren to remember.
