Lost Days Of September

The lost days of September are the ones I can't forget. Some of them were happy, yet " others were sad. Still, those lost days keep coming back. It happened many years ago, when I was still very young. I remember being in love. I thought life was sweet and the world was mine. Everything was going good. Everything was beautiful. I used to be happy, but time don't stop. September was over and I found myself being alone. Sometime in October - I found out that I was going to be a mother. It was something I didn't expect, but I accepted. I use to wonder - what happened? I don't know, but each year in September, those lost days keep coming back to me. I was left alone to raise my child and the years passed. Now in my twilight years, my child is grown and I am here with my memories. Each year when Fall is about to start, those lost days of September keep coming back to my mind. It was in those days of September that my daughter was concieved...

    Ah, how lovely Lucilla! Memories do nag more in Sept. it seems. I have memories too of youth and September...fact is I wrote a poem last year titled "Blue September". There seems to be something about Sept. that tickles the heart to relive a thousand memories, happy and sad...My mother would say, "things that hurt instruct!" so I never got married in September again. LOL Peace and Love to you my friend! Cynthia

    Yes the calendar does revive memories both good and bad. My sympathy in the loss of your mother. My mom's birthday was Sept. 3 and my youngest brother Sept. 4. Another brother Sept. 19 and my granddaughter Sept. 18. They are all gone now but Sept. brings memories. Thank you for your comments. Love, Joyce
