remember the times
when the sun shone bright
on our faces

warming our bodies
as our hearts beat strong

remember the days
when there was no schedules
to be obeyed

causing time to pause
as we explored the world

remember the moments
when tears came
so swiftly into view

only to dry quickly in the
creases of a smile

and remember
the warmth that was

to carry us through
the cold that surrounds us

as we go trudging on

  1. There is an exquisite tension between the warmth of this vision and the reality of the weather. The author must be strong, indeed, to maintain it in the face of such a sgnificant caloric challenge. I long to bake on that tropical shore.

    Nicely done.
