Come To Mind
Some of my memories are special
Like one back when I was a boy
Hearing Mother's voice again
And remembering her love for me_
This memory fills my heart with joy.
Sometimes memories come to mind
Of my sister asking me to play
Anticipation in her waiting eyes
And her joy when I told her okay_
Memories like this make my day.
Memories of the school bell ringing
On the final day before summer begins
Happiness on all our young faces
Trying to be first out the school doors_
If only I could live those days again.
I hope memories of today for my children
Are all pleasant ones_ just like mine
So that one day they can close their eyes
And turn the clock back to their childhood_
Remembering it as their very special time.
