Up To You

Feelings of euphoria, if even for just a day feuilleton or stichomythia, words I can't even say scoring the winning goal in the championship game raising you up over their shoulders basking in your thirty seconds of fame Tomorrow will they remember your name? That sunny summer afternoon by the lake skipping stones watching the ripples float away seeing her beautiful reflection bobbing in the waves taking her hand as she took your breath away how that seemed like just yesterday Would she even remember your name? The harvest moon shining brightly through the window you squeezing my hand so very tight the nurse wiping your brow pain in your voice but a smile on your face when the doctor handed you that little girl How we decided on that perfect name. Memories come and memories go but how you will be remembered is up to you

One sure have special memories of child birth..Memories that will always be.People might change by time but such memories remain.Other success and fame such winning a baseball game is special too..but its momentary.Our own flesh and blood..watching them grow is the true success,and whatever the changes in life,one will always be remembered of being a great parent,other things we are remembered for depends on our deeds..You willbe remembered as a great dad,poet and loyal friend!!
