Memories Capture Time
By David Smith October 25, 2010
Memories come alive on You Tube as I spy
Dean Martin and Goldie Hawn, as life is marching by;
All the lines of poetry to have memorized each week;
As it flashes on the internet; the past to vividly seek.
The net is full of memories; those scenes of yesteryear
Of being with my mom and dad when those first lines appear.
Spending time on You Tube; Those memories of the past;
They flash upon the inward eye; vivid thoughts to last;
Thinking of my mom and dad and a family secure;
Shifting in a new generation; Grandchildren we endure.
The tender kisses from a loving mom, to grandchildren we embrace.
It all is nature’s way, to carry on the human race.
And to capture time as sand sifts through the glass;
The moment is all but gone, but the future will always last.
O those precious memories as we laugh and shed a tear.
To share them with my grandchildren, Stories that they hear.
