When I Become a Memory

Daily Prompt: Memory on the Menu
Which good memories are better — the recent and vivid ones, or those that time has carved in a sweet haze?

Let me hold onto those who are lost to me
Memories give me a reprieve of sort again

They are the windows into shadows of the past
I glance back to happy times through them again

Memories are treasures of far off lived times
The moments are gone, they won’t come again

When I become a memory, I hope to remain
Good memory for my own, till we meet again
(Sheen)

  1. You have poignantly captured my thoughts as of late. Going through a very difficult time has made me miss my mother, godmother and grandmother even more. They would have lent me an ear. I do miss them terribly but your words help me to look back and receive a reprieve of sorts. It is a comfort. Thank you, Cate
