Places Where I've Lived

In my time upon this earth
the places where I've lived
have created memories to numerous to count
some memories, good and warm
other memories, bad and cold
best forgotten for all the pain
they have caused me.
The many homes through which I have passed
from childhood into adulthood
though mose are gone by now
still stand within my mind.
Grandpa working in his garden
growing many wonderous things,
his chasing me at play
and catching me everytime,
my first sandbox
and the many cats who by design it seems
had their own ideas for that same sandbox.
Numerous moves, more memories
home all different in design and size
all the places where I have lived mean many things
remembrances to travel along beside be for a lifetime
while others fade away only to be lost forever.
