The Memories You Gave To Me - Poem by David Harris

The memories you gave to me
so long ago still linger on.
The heartache and pain of parting
have been forgotten and are gone,
but your memories still linger
and they are mine all mine.
They might fade a little as years go by,
like old photographs tempered with time;
they are my treasured possessions
as the years fade away.
My only consolation
of the once loving heart
and the good times we had
before love drove us apart.

The memories you gave to me
will be with me ever more.
No one can take them away
like our dreams they did before.
Maybe our love has gone now
and will never more return,
like the fires in your eyes for me
that are cold and refuse to burn,
but your memories are still there
and will remain as long as time allows.
All the happiness and joy we had
alongside the sadness and pain.
I may never quite get over you
after all that’s been said and done.
For the memories you gave to me
so long ago still linger on.

16 January 1996

    A very thoughtful and inspirational poem. Love can be very sad. Have a look at my Missing You. I lost my wife a year ago and she is alive in my poetry. (Report) Reply
