Memories - Poem by Humera Sultana

Sitting on the fence of memories
I saw them passing by....
One stood awhile and made me smile
While the other waved a 'hi'....
Some pricked a tear, a few embalmed a fear
That one rushed to me....
And flushed a blush!
This one I swallowed...
Another choked me!
One at the dead end
While passing by....
placed a casket in my palm
and said-
'We are your memories..
We are here, never to say GOOD-BYE! ! ! ! ! ! ! '

    Loved the casket placed in your palm, memories are our lifelines when we grow older, keeping us anchored to our lives when remembered. In the end, it is all we truly have left as we say our final good byes. Very intimate and lovely poem of feelings and emotions, quietly hidden in memories. Thank you, RoseAnn (Report) Reply
