Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Garden Of Memories
In my home there are memories
which i keep inside a journal
Something i started many years

My life and all its labor spent
show bits and pieces on my
As i rise each and every
the scars and lines
not to be erased

As you see there's a garden
and with it comes some weeds
I weed them out but always
they never seem to leave

But now as i am getting frail
i see the good and the bad
along the way
and realize that you can't have
the blooms without the pain

So I count it all blessings
as i see each new line
My entire life comes alive
and everyday was worth my time

'cause I have made a garden
of memories
flowers and weeds
Planted good and bad seed
but for my harvest
I am well pleased
