How Shall I Remember You
How shall I remember you
as heavenward I gaze
through clouds of wispy ether
and shimm’ring misty haze.
How shall I recall your smile
through time’s fast moving pace -
remember then forever
your face, your gentle face.
What memories shall stir me
that we should never part –
what thoughts forever cherish
and hold within in my heart.
And shall the things that bound us
together through the years
remain to bring me solace
and ease away my fears.
Are they fixed within my heart
in this gold band I wear -
are they dancing in the wind
yes, shall I find them there.
I pray that they will never
be lost within the shade –
that they will shine forever
not fade, not ever fade.
How shall I remember you -
within the stars that gleam?
as an image in my mind -
a dream, just as a dream …..?
