MOMENTS WE NEVER FORGET

There are moments in life one never forgets . . .
like the fleeting rainbow's hue
passing you by so swiftly , and yet
their memory is the world to you.

They are the gems we so greatly treasure
hidden away in "Memory's Chest"
perhaps a word spoken in idle leisure
by one you loved the best!

Perhaps it was the touch of a baby's hand
gently playing with your hair
while evening breezes cooled the land
joy and peace was everywhere!

Perhaps 'twas a kiss, just lightly given
without a thought of care
yet to you, it was like a glimpse of heaven
the sweetness lingering forever there!

  1. wow, I'm the first one to comment on this post :)

    so true, those "little" memories are precious.

    It's rainy and dreary here in Boston, but this post just put a smile on my face.

    thanks Margie,

    Robyn

  12. Yes, Margie, we will always remember the special moments and the wise words of wisdom from the ones that we hold so dear. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of those moments and words that were spoken, but I know that they are thinking of me with smiles and support and your love ones are smiling at you as well.
