About the Poem

They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder. For me it certainly does. When apart and lonely I just remember my life with you.

These Memories

In my heart I have a special place
Where I've put my memories of you
And when we're apart I open it up.
They're still as fresh as the morning dew.

When I get lonely, I close my eyes and imagine
The touch of your skin while holding you near.
If I'm sad and need cheering, I just need to recall
The smile on your face when I say, I Love You Dear.

These memories I cherish, to me they are priceless.
Who could ask for greater glory or fame?
To hold in my heart the memories of you,
A greater treasure no man can lay claim.

Too many of us, forget that when we are away, our loved ones are with us still, we have but to close our eyes...
