Treasure Island

Memories Long Ago


Memories continue to linger on about days long past
Peering at many reflections in an old looking glass
Time can never erase all the love that was shared
Many hearts were laid open plenty souls were bared

Time it is often said does not wait for any man
So make the most of it and enjoy whenever you can
For days long ago will soon be just another memory
Like the end of a rainbow where eyes could never see

So remember the good times and even the bad times too
Life will be much better for God will see you through
Keep looking forward but never forget memories long ago
A better day is just up ahead for the Bible tells us so

    Time is a misty that separated you to me....
    winter birds come from west
    and left their past there... and move away..

    very deep feeling of heart.... i liked it... it moves me too...
    thanks again Patricia.... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
