Memories Poem

For Goodness Sake

In this Memories Poem, life’s possibilities travel the byways of experience—hope meeting disappointment, joy overthrown—yet a new vision makes all things dear. 

Photos speak what words no longer say,

Who once lived, loved, shaped each day.

Childhood memories,

Sweet baby fresh,

Life’s possibilities,

Hope, fears mesh.

Young mother held and rocked,

Against all monsters locked.

Rustic Dad with kids did roam,

Always return, safe haven home.

In youth’s mighty grasp,

The world did clasp.

Joy overthrown,

Disappointment did own.

But down the lane,

Return hope sane,

As the world jolts,

And reason bolts.

Faithful siblings clash,

Memories, tears dash.

Relentless fail,

Laughter hail.

New vision dear,

Selfless cheer,

For others,



Beyond touch,

Memories clutch.

Hearts swell and break,

Love—for goodness sake.
