Memories

Life is made of memories -
some are good and some are bad.
It's never too late to add some good -
some day they'll make us glad.

Bad memories need a firm hand -
throw them out and lose the key;
Good memories put a song in our hearts
for both you and me.

We take comfort in those special times
we build with one another;
They keep us warm and hold us tight
like a baby held by a mother.

A good memory is to cherish
and recall how it came about.
It will stay with us forever -
of that I have no doubt.

Doing a good deed will make us feel good;
it's something we will remember.
Attend a play, write your thoughts,
make a snowman in December.

This is how we build memories;
it's easier than you think.
We'll benefit with happiness,
and feel we're in the pink.

Things we remember through the years
are memories we've made;
They make life happy for others, too,
and for us they never fade.

MAY WE ALL MAKE HAPPY MEMORIES IN 2010 !!!
