I Have A Memory

Updated on August 13, 2016


I have a faint memory, a memory of a small boy

I don't know why it comes into my mind when I see this choir boy

I cannot remember the name of that small boy

I personally don't know as to what became of that boy.

I was just a little girl hopping freely with the gentle breeze

I remember the rustling of the leaves on the trees

Then I heard my grandpa watching the daily evening News

Not allowed to talk loud or make any sound even if I excuse.


I saw this small boy inside of the Television

Who had lost his father, a famous singer was his position

I don’t know why, seeing that boy in tears made me cry

So I asked Jesus to keep that boy safe and make him not cry.


Back then I remember how I wanted to comfort that small boy

Seeing him crying made me so sad and I don’t know why,

Then I realized how silly, it was for me to think of an unknown boy

Besides what are the chances of actually meeting that boy?

So when I met this guy at the time I was a member of a choir

That fainted memory, just popped into my mind like a ball on fire

I wanted to say something nice, but I just kept quiet

I didn't want to remind sad memories that are private.

It was the last concert that I sang at the choir

I terribly missed my father who was my desire

That day, out of sadness for the first time I spoke to the guy I thought

Assuming that he was the little boy whom I prayed and thought.

I cannot remember the name of the famous singer who died

I don't know even it's the same boy whom I felt sad about and cried

However, whenever I see this guy, the memory hit me like a ton of bricks

So I always ask Jesus Christ to bless him as I don't want to get emotionally mixed.


I must say this guy is such a nice decent friendly guy

He could sing beautifully and a very talented simple guy

He seems caring towards the poor and the disable

He's down to earth as he doesn't put anyone any label.

I'm fond of him as he's kind and seems genuinely sincere for a person

As I said earlier I don't know whether it's the same boy now grown into a lovable person

I simply hope and pray that God will look after that little boy and this guy

Comfort and strengthen their hearts as they accept Jesus Christ before their final Goodbye!
