A image whispers through my contemplations I feel like I’ve awakened in a dream of the past Emotions surround me, gracing me with prayers Bidding me wisdom from this reflection elapsed A representation of what once gave me joy Selections of melodies gone now, but recalled With this tender rendition of long-ago moments Sweet echoes singing softly as I listen intently A replication gently touches my inner affections Reminding me that I’ve been blessed with memories Some that will always appeal to my compassion Some that encourage me to keep loving with passion A vision of some moment that has passed from my mind Valuable beauty filling my heart with inspiration and delight Little memorials of all the things that have gone by me Adventures in living that reassure and fill me with sensibility A portrayal of living that enlivens my sense of reception Waking within me that charming remembrance of elation The way that if feels to know acceptance and assurance Feelings that come back with a glimpse at this picture A depiction of the moment when I was so alive with anticipation Yearning for the heartfelt fervor that brightens the moments Soothing the broken heart and heartening the discouraged Comforting the one who hurts and encouraging the hopeless one A personification of satisfaction from hope, faith and love All that comes from knowing the grace and mercy of God above Sent to reassure anyone who sees this impression of an earlier time A moment that stirred up feelings which will always hold adoration for… A memory caught in a photo
