Remembering Times Past

Updated on November 11, 2013

Remembering Times Past

When the coffin closes and the flames burn

The days still slip by and the world will still turn

You need not shed any tears of pain

When the time is right, we shall meet again.

Remember how we would sit and talk for hours

All the plans we made when we thought the world ours

Remember how we marvelled at rainbows in a stormy sky

Then listened for our names in the wind blowing by.

Remember the park where we both would meet

Or the soft hush of snow beneath our feet

Remember long midnight walks on a golden beach

Where the glory of nature was within our reach.

Remember how we’d see stars dancing so bright

Then watch the sunrise mark the end of the night

Remember how the power of the sea put us under her spell

And how we sat and watched as autumn leaves fell.

Remember how without a word, the other one knew

And how over the years our love grew and grew

Remember only the good of times long past

And live each remaining day as your last.

Judi Radley, 2013

      Very nice Judi, and welcome to HubPages. Hope you enjoy posting and sharing words with the Hub community; I'm sure you'll make lots of friends. Just a small hint: try to put up several pictures that relate to each poem or article- the more media the better, and so your scores will rise and more people will read and comment. If you've not done it before go to (it's free) and find pictures that suit. It gives strength to your work and is more pleasurable for your readers. Best of luck and enjoy. Tony
