Memories


Today is the day that started many years ago.
Today is the day I must fill before on I go.

Tomorrow is the day that starts after today is over.
So today’s memories I have to fill before on I go.

I cannot live yesterday’s memories.
I cannot change them either.

What then is the purpose of a memory?
Yes, to guide my steps for a new memory to make.

What is the purpose of a memory?
Yes, to strengthen my steps in courage lost.

I can’t live yesterday’s memory but it lives on in me.
I can only live today and create memory by how I live.

The memories I want to live with tomorrow,
Is the life I must live today.

So my life today must be put on course.
The road to build is up to me. It’s my choice.

I can’t live yesterday over. That day is over forever.
Its memory may linger but to live it again, no never.

Today’s end is what I am thinking of
To kill its memory would never do.

So I choose carefully the path I walk.
Since I will never again this way walk.

I’d love to have your input into the free writing lessons available on the FaithWriters forums. This week’s lesson is on writing devotionals, and next week will cover writing on topic for the weekly challenge. Look for it at http://www.faithwriters.com/Boards/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=67, or if you’re on Facebook, you can “like” Faithwriters Writing Lessons.

Lovely, easy rhyme to follow. I like the flow of this, when read aloud.

My favorite lines were the first ones. Thanks for sharing!

Sweet and contemplative.

I think most poetry, especially free verse, benefits from the use of imagery--something to appeal to the readers' senses so that they have something to hang the poem on.

I love the simplicity and tenderness of this poem.
