It always amazes me,
how fast the years flow by.
My heart has so many treasures,
stored in my memory,
kept close to my heart –
that still give me so many pleasures.
Of days that used to be,
life is like a carousel spinning ever faster
and the years hurry by,
while trying to catch that golden ring.
My heart still aches for the memories,
of days that have been
and friends and family who’ve passed on.
Beside us they’ll always still be,
in our hearts and forever in our memory.
I know in my deepest soul,
that I should look forward,
to days that will be
and bring new memories.
Still my heart wants,
to return to years that are long past,
but still bring smiles to me
and so I bravely face a new tomorrow –
leaving behind yesterday’s sorrow.
So many more smiles ahead
and with God’s blessing my carousel will continue spinning.
I’m glad to say that come what may –
life is a wonder to be treasured.
