Sometimes Memories

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.
