Captured Memories Poem 23/12/2021

*This poem is dedicated to all my family. Both near & far. Both in person as well in Spirit*

Looking back.
At these photographs.
Feeling the love, & remembering the laughs.
The smiles of youth & the grace of the wise.
The laughter of picnics, under sunset skies.
Happy memories of young & old.
Listening to stories of their memories being told.
His memories of the war, what they felt & what they saw.
Her memories of being a maid in a hotel. The story of the nits was a gritty, itchy tale.
Her memories of her youth, nights out in the clubs & travels to France.
I really do miss my angel of an aunt.
Cousins playing in a pool. Hot summer days out of school.
Carving sticks, with nan’s peeling knife.
Bunking off school, causing my parents strife.
Family gatherings Birthdays, Easter, Halloween, Christmas & Boxing Day.
I really wish those who passed, could of stayed.
Looking back at all these faces. Feeling the love & memory traveling back to the places.

So at this time of year. Whenever you may be. Hold your loved ones close & be happy.
For these moments pass in the blink of an eye. Someday soon, we all join our loved ones up in the sky.

Blessed Yule.
Merry Christmas.

I hope you all have a Blessed 2022.

Wherever you are in the world/Gaia. I hope you have a blessed day/night.
