Down Memory Lane

Copyright © 2012 Tryphena Louise Williams

I am looking back on places I’ve been
So many memories of things I’ve seen

A few sad thoughts cross my mind
Life has not always felt so kind

Life at times gives me a shove
To teach more about how to love

Times of folly when I was young
All parties and songs we sung

Then I married and settled down
Happily I lived away from town

Two lovely children born to me
A blessing they turned out to be

Some old photos bring on a smile
Looking back it has been a while

The tears of grief my heavy heart
A sick husband my life fell apart

I can still remember all we shared
Our bond of love it showed we cared

I remember this month with a tear
To say to my husband I’m still here

Happy Birthday all my love to you
I know in my heart you love me too

good verses, after a time we re-read them, they appear new and always in new perspective.

". we are learning always how to love.
