Book of Memories

When I'm weary, tired, when life is

rough and rocky - I look through

the book of my memories. Hidden

among the masses, one shines above

them all. All my troubles fade

into small pebbles bore down from

solid stone. From this one memory -

I rise above my own self-doubt and

travel into the realm of the 

future. Into a bridge built of

stepping stones. As I reach the

center, I fall to my knees,

trembling from it's greatness and

divine hope. Here, I gain the

strength of loves I have known.

As I reach the end of the bridge - 

I am forced to look back and see

the presence that walked with me.

From this shadow of a memory, I

shall always know the comfort of

goodness and hope. Giving me the

strength of a love more solid than

stone. Yes, I often turn the pages

in the book of my memories.
