Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Scrapbook
 
Allowing mind to frolic
'n dance with memory
to ballet into past tense
days of you...
and me

Carousels, excitement
footsteps in the sand
rainy days 'n rainbows
walking, hand in hand

Midnight strolls 'n chatter
giggles in our tea
story time 'n sharing
footprints by the sea

Dancing with own shadows
laughing, having fun
playing pranks 'n joking
basking 'neath the sun

Fireflies at nightfall
igloos in the snow
laughter, midnight nonsense
me...
waltzing top your toes

Twinkling stars 'n wishes
running thru the fields
picnics on the common
games of hide 'n seek

Chocolate flavored ice-cream
dribbling down our chins
building dreams of 'morrows
cotton candy grins

Butterflies, dragonflies
captured in a net
football games 'n popcorn
making silly bets

Soothing lonely heartache
when life became unkind
growing old together
always...
side by side

Days of yore remembered
mindscapes paved with gold
happy thoughts play hopscotch
deep within my core

My heart goes pitter patter
when'er I hear your name
yet...
it feels a sadness
weeps in sad refrain

Wiping lonely teardrop
still gazing at the sky
I hear my name, soft whisper
'hush now, please don't cry

A calm below the surface
when things have gone awry
I believe within my being
to see you bye 'n bye

Flipping through the pages
in scrapbook of my mind
mem'ries...
priceless treasures
always to be mine

I see you 'mongst the brightest stars
can hear your echoed hymn
its then I know you're with me
hugging hurt....
again
