MY PARENTS

Memories and moments Hold each others hands Treasured in our hearts Framed in gold till the day we depart Can we ever learn to let go And leave it all behind Little gifts of love So precious in our minds My mothers name, so neat Etched in my fathers hand The letters brown and fading And yet in my memories they stand. The photo frame that holds them Sepia, tinted old Their smiles still fresh and glowing Both so precious, much more than gold. 8.4.2021 Sponsor: Brian Strand Contest: All yours (April 9) First Place
