UNFORGOTTEN MEMORIES / written 1997

 
 
 
 
 
UNFORGOTTEN MEMORIES
Unforgotten memories
were stored inside an old cardboard box.
Flipping through old snapshots
...stories were unlocked.
Did you know you made me smile ?
You can see the tears in my eyes.
What's that look I see in you?
You laughed until you cried.
I needed your arm around me.
Did you like that pat on your back?
You made me feel like an angel.
It's sweet when you do things like that.
That old box was tucked away,
dusty, hidden under my bed.
But the memories were dancing
reliving each day in my head.
My heart was pounding with each picture.
Each photograph came to life.
Thoughts of us together then
were as if there were no pause in time.
Your smile warmed my heart today
in pictures of yesterdays thoughts.
Unforgotten memories
are priceless times that could
never be bought.
Now each time I pull out my camera
and add new pictures to my box
I'll smile and thank God in Heaven for memories becoming unlocked.

  3. Thank you Cathy. I had more pictures but it kept messing up my poem pattern.(as you can tell it was tricky already.) I had to delete some very important ones. (Should I say more?). Love you.
