When a moment turns into a special memory

Updated on June 19, 2013

Etched into my mind. Beautiful memory.

l´ll treasure this moment forever, It´s something l´ll never forget.

When a moment becomes a memory, you can tie me up,

Lock me up, throw away the key..........................

But you won´t take this memory from me.

Once a moment has turned into a memory, l´ll say it again

For it´s true. You can tie me up, lock me up throw away the key,

But this memory you´ll never take away from me.

The glorious sunshine, the brilliant sky,

Our minds so connected, we ignored passers by,

There WAS no-one else, in all the wide world,

Just you, just me, and this forming memory,

Surveying the landscape, then searching your eyes,

You doing the same as you looked into mine.

Locked in a moment, the moment will pass,

But once it´s a memory, forever it´ll last.

Feel the light breeze as it´s wafting aromas,

of wild flowers, bluebells, all sorts around us.

Heady aromas and beautiful sights,

How happy we were, all things aright,

The brook rippled by us , a wonderful sound,

So peaceful, so tender, as we lay on the ground.

Under our oak tree,. Our favourite place,

But this day our ¨special¨memory took place.

How COULD we forget, something etched into our minds,

A beautiful memory, one of a kind.

Yes, you can tie me up, lock me up, throw away the key,

But you´ll never take away my special memory.

    I love your obsevation of the fact that we don't often realise we are making memories.

    Some of them are so wonderful to look back on.

    Beautiful poetry in your words I find

    about the memories we hold within our mind.

    Your words express in such a beautiful way

    a cherished time from another day

    The thoughts that bring us back in time

    you beautifully captured in this very sweet rhyme.

    Ditto.... Trying to erase bad memories is great if you can do it.

    I´m trying to fill my brain(such as it is) to capacity with good memories , so there´s no room for the bad ones. Love you, man as always

    ...well writing like this could make me cry - such beautiful sentiments from such a beautiful lady - yes I am thinking of you on this Mother's Day with love and respect and admiration. My mum was my best friend.

    And we've had many 'moments' here at the Hub you and I which will be 'special memories' ....

    Dear Dim,

    I love this poem because this is so true. No one can take our memories away..it is nice to just pull them out and reflect on the days gone by..or at least the good ones.

    "Locked in a moment, the moment will pass,

    But once it´s a memory, forever it´ll last".

    Up and Beautiful!

    God Bless,

    Sunnie
