Do you remember –?
The first time you went
Walking through the freshly
fallen, fiery leaves of Autumn.

The first time you rode your bicycle
Without training wheels all the way
down the neighborhood street?

The first time you caught a firefly
And held its gentle glow
inside your hand?

The first time you saw lightning
bolts Hit the ground
and heard thunder that shook
The heavens?

The first time you said
” I love you” and
really and truly meant it?

The day your daughter or
son came into your life?

The day your father, mother,
sister or brother exited without
warning this life.

Our lives are full
Of memories that become
Treasured keepsakes
And touchstones
To relive and revisit
Time and again.
Reminding us of who
We were and where
we have
been.

If we desire to be
Truly complete,
Then we must
Seek to know His
Forgiveness

And Remember His final
Words of
“It is Finished.”

I enjoyed your poem. As I read, memories of each of of your "Do you remember..." flashed into my mind. Made your poem interactive. Good closing. Good job!

I truly enjoyed this. I do remember a lot of those things and they were the best and worst times.

Beautifully written. God Bless

What a gentle path through memories - some deeply buried for various reasons - yet the way you lead me there was no hurt. Well done.

What a delightful poem, taking us on a journey through life with our precious memories - good and bad. A timely message to round it off too. Well done.

A good flowing poetic reminder of some of those memorable milestones in life.
Like your style of writing and the way your thoughts flow. Thanks!

From your first stanza reminding me of one of my favorite things to do -walking among the brilliantly fallen leaves and kicking them about as I go-through its entirety your lovingly crafted poem was a delightful trip into other noteworthy moments in my life.

I like your warm, inviting and reassuring style - right through to, and including, the challenge at the close.
