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.
Sweet baby fresh,
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.
Disappointment did own.
But down the lane,
Return hope sane,
As the world jolts,
And reason bolts.
Faithful siblings clash,
Memories, tears dash.
New vision dear,
Hearts swell and break,
Love—for goodness sake.
